> -Aims of the GMBA symposium-
> The main objective of this GMBA symposium is to summarize existing
> and to identify approaches to sustainable agriculture in montane/alpine
> for both, sustainable carrying capacity and biodiversity in subtropical
> tropical countries. According to the GMBA scope, we seek contributions
> 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,
> A thematically parallel GMBA symposium in cooperation with the 6th
> International Conference of the African Mountains Association took place
> August 2002 in Moshi, Tanzania, collecting knowledge on Mountain
> 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
