Abstract:
Steppe grasslands have covered vast areas of European landscapes during the Quaternary, but are nowadays mostly representing rare habitats in Central and Southeastern Europe. As the remaining patches of dry grasslands are important refuges for many rare and endangered species, they are of high relevance for nature conservation. Here, I will report results from two FWF-projects focusing on the biogeographical history of dry grassland plants in Western Germany on the one hand and in the Pannonicum on the other hand. The first project was designed as a transect study and revealed findings about intraspecific genetic variation and plant performance across the species’ peripheral distribution range. Thereby, the specific situation of the northwesternmost “steppe” exclave in Rhineland-Palatinate was highlighted. Within the second project, the local continuity of dry grasslands across the Pannonian and Western Pontic region as well as adjacent areas was investigated by analysing species richness and intraspecific genetic diversity patterns. These analyses followed a vegetational approach by comparing results for the three main grassland orders of the Pannonian and Western Pontic region, i.e. Brometalia erecti, Festucetalia valesiacae, and Stipo-Festucetalia pallentis.

    The International Data Week - a top class specialist congress with 900 participants from the field of data science - will take place for the first time in October 2023 in Europe. The city of Salzburg was able to beat numerous other applicants to be the hosts of the event. The University of Salzburg is an important cooperation partner.
    From October 2020 the University of Salzburg will be offering the new bachelor's degree „Medical Biology“. The course aims to convey the diversity of the biomedical science disciplines and therefore facilitates a multi-faceted, biological understanding for topics which are essential for medicine.The course content ranges from the small scale structure of the cell and organs and organ systems to the biology of complex interpersonal interactions.
    150 participants have already taken the opportunity to register for more than 50 courses on IT and digitialisation at the ditact_women's IT summer studies at the University of Salzburg, which will take place from the 01.09.-12.09.2020.Registration is still possible until the 12.
