  Quarterly Letter | Issue 16 | 1st of July 2015  

Dear colleagues,

Today, you receive Issue 16 of our regular Quarterly Letter. As usual, in this issue we present numerous interesting news and recent publications.

Some of the regional projects of the Sustainable Land Management programme will finish their research activities in the next months. To collect information for the upcoming Quarterly Letters we would like to ask you for your latest results, pictures, publications you would like to share with the community in our research programme. Your support would be very much appreciated.

We hope you will find a wide range of interesting scientific readings in this Quarterly Letter issue.

Have a good summer time!
The GLUES Scientific Coordination Team
