CALL FOR PROPOSALS: Sessions for the 2014 Global Land Project Open Science Meeting

The 2014 Global Land Project Open Science Meeting will synthesize and discuss the role of the land system as a platform for human-environment interactions, connecting local land use decisions to global impacts and responses. The meeting, on the theme of “Land transformations: Between global challenges and local realities,” is scheduled for March 19-21, 2014, in Berlin.
