Research publication service

SURE offers the SURE members the chance to share their current publications dealing with topics of SURE among the network. This should help to exchange knowledge and recent findings in the field of urban ecology between each other and to make the research of the SURE members more visible.  If you are interested in the SURE Publication Service we would like to ask you to fill the form and send it back to our SURE webmaster who will put the information on the SURE webpage.
