First Announcement-

The Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment (GMBA) of  DIVERSITAS

Second GMBA Symposium on "Linking mountain diversity with fire, grazing
and
erosion" to be held in La Paz (Bolivia) 20-23th August 2003

 -Patronage-
   DIVERSITAS
 AMA Andean Mountains Association

 -Sponsors-
  Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation
 FAO
 UNESCO
 -Organizers-
  Eva Spehn, GMBA Global Mountain Biodiversity Assessment, Switzerland
  Maximo Liberman Cruz & Eduardo Palenque, University of La Paz, Bolivia
  Elisabeth Huber-Sannwald, IPICYT, San Luis Potosí, Mexico
 Alejandro Velázquez, UNAM, Morelia, Mexico
 -Aims of the GMBA symposium-

The main objective of this GMBA symposium is to summarize existing
knowledge
and to identify approaches to sustainable agriculture in montane/alpine areas
for both, sustainable carrying capacity and biodiversity in subtropicaland tropical countries. According to the GMBA scope, we seek contributionswith a
focus in the uppermost zone of the montane forest or its substitute range land and the tropical-alpine zone.

 The symposium will have paper presentations and group discussions. We are looking for contributions from the Andes, but also from other mountain ranges, specifically on:
 - land use effects on biological richness of mountains
 - functional importance of biodiversity for ground cover, soil stability, pasture quality,
 - links between biodiversity among organismic groups (plants vs. animals)
 - information on sustainable carrying capacity of the uplands for grazing (comparison of ways of pasturing or fire cycle management)
- Sustainable use/restoration of upper montane forest (food, fiber,
energy)

 A thematically parallel GMBA symposium in cooperation with the 6th  International Conference of the African Mountains Association took place
in
August 2002 in Moshi, Tanzania, collecting knowledge on Mountain biodiversity
and sustainable land use mainly in African Mountains - which should now be compared to experiences in the Andes.

 We therefore encourage participants from the Andes and S and SE Asia in particular. Plans exist to lump the results of both workshops into one
state
of the art assessment product.

 Sponsorship for a limited number of participants to the conference is available, especially for participants from Andean or other developing countries. See website (
http://www.unibas.ch/gmba) for conditions and application form.

 -Languages-
   English and Spanish will be the languages at the symposium.

 If you need more information about the event, please access the website at

 -Deadlines-
  15th January 2003 - Submission of registration form and outline of paper
 15th January 2003 - Submission of financial application form for those requesting funding (obligatory written contribution)
15th April 2003 - Submission of final paper

 Please note: Right after the GMBA symposium the 2nd. CONGRESS OF
CONSERVATION
 OF BIODIVERSITY IN THE ANDES AND THE AMAZON BASIN and IV. ECUADORIAN BOTANICAL CONGRESS takes place in Loja, Ecuador (25-30 August 2003). For more
