The school is held every year at the PALASE field station of the University of Ioannina in the Pindos Mountains of Greece. It lasts for 12 days and is aimed at graduate and postgraduate students. We offer training on issues of biodiversity and advanced statistical methods for conservation biology. Apart from training with modern statistical and other quantitative tools (such as R and database design), participants have the opportunity to experience the stunning biodiversity of the region by working in small teams gathering data from the wide variety of habitat types. Participants can observe how different types of diversity (taxonomic, phylogenetic) have been affected by human culture both negatively, for example after land abandonment, and also in positive ways, such as at sacred natural sites. GSS-2016 is under the auspices of the Hellenic Ecological Society (HELCOS) and Society for Conservation Biology (SCB Europe) and is scheduled for 27/06/2016 – 08/07/2016. The registration cost of 700 Euros (reductions are available in some cases) covers everything except your air tickets. More information can be found at our website (gss.bat.uoi.gr).
