Gartenlust statt Gartenfrust

Praxistipps zum Pflanzenschutz
Delicately fragranced rose blossoms. Dew drops sparkling on leaves. Buzzing bees, fluttering butterflies and a basket of homegrown fruits and aromatic herbs.

Briefing for the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES)

June 2016 to September 2016
From the 26 until 30 September 2016, the 17th meeting of the Conference of the Parties of the "Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species" (CITES COP 17) took place in Johannesburg South Africa.
