Joint 42nd Annual GSSA Congress & 4th Annual Thicket Forum Meeting 21st Century Challenges: Range, Forage and Thicket

16 – 20 JULY 2007
Eden Grove, Rhodes University, Grahamstown

The 42nd Annual Congress of the GSSA was held in association with the 4th Annual Thicket Forum Meeting at the Eden Grove complex at Rhodes University, Grahamstown. The main theme of the Congress was 21st Century Challenges: Range, Forage and Thicket.

Grahamstown is situated in an area of great biological diversity, where a range of biomes and land uses are found: from subtropical thicket to grasslands, savannas and the Karoo, and from dairy farming to communal rangelands and wildlife conservation. The Congress aimed to reflect the great diversity of rangeland types, uses and challenges found around Grahamstown.
