Park management meeting on ATBI+M in Gemer, Slovakia
Monday June 23rd 2008 09:31:44 AM

From November 6-9, 2007, a series of meetings took place in Slovakia at the Comenius University, Bratislava, and two nature reserves in the Gemer Area: Slovensky Raj and Muranska Planina. Representatives attended from EDIT Work Package 7, the ministry of environment, three nature reserves (Slovensky Raj, Muranska Planina, and Slovensky Kras), from the French Mercantour natural park and from the Comenius University. Find out more here.
The Memorandum of Understanding between EDIT and the Slovakian State Nature Conservancy was discussed and agreed upon. Fieldwork can very likely start in Spring 2008 and researchers are very welcome to indicate their interest and propose for fieldwork in the Gemer area. Guidelines for providing ATBI data will be the same as for Mercantour/Alpi Marittime, but Terms of Reference and financial reimbursement schemes are at this point still being drafted. More about that soon on this website and on the ATBI forum
