»Interactions between Land Management, Climate Change and Ecosystem Services«  
  Quarterly Letter | Issue 23 | 9th of May 2017  

Dear colleagues,

In this issue 23 of our Quarterly Letter we list again interesting news and a couple of publications that have been produced within the individual projects of the Sustainable Land Management programme.

Furthermore we would like to point out the video clips that have been produced in collaboration with WOCAT and SuLaMa and INNOVATE. Those videos are available online here. The clips of COMTESS and KULUNDA will follow.

We hope you enjoy reading and watching.

Kindest regards,
The GLUES Scientific Coordination Team
