»Interactions between Land Management, Climate Change and Ecosystem Services«  
  Quarterly Letter | Issue 12 | 23rd of June 2014  

Dear colleagues,

Today, you receive Issue 12 of our regular Quarterly Letter. With this issue we would like to draw your attention to numerous interesting news and many new publications that have been produced within the individual regional projects of the Sustainable Land Management programme. We also list several upcoming events that are of interest to the research programme.


Furthermore, we would like to inform you about the currently ongoing redesign of the Sustainable Land Management overarching website. We are intensely working on incorporating some new features and making the website clearer and more user-friendly. We hope to be finished with this process at the end of the summer. In the meantime, we apologize for any inconvenience this process may bring.

We hope you will find a wide range of interesting scientific readings in this Quarterly Letter issue and we wish everybody nice and relaxed summer days!

Kindest regards,
The GLUES Scientific Coordination Team
