More information

This working group is one of the outcomes of the EU COST Action ES1104 intended to provide a hub of knowledge particularly relating to the practical methods of vegetation establishment and restoration as well as sustainable land management in arid and dryland areas. The aim of the Action is to coordinate experts in many fields (hydrology, soils, ecology, agronomy, landscape planning, etc.) to accumulate traditional and innovative scientific knowledge through collaborations (Kotzen, 2015)
