This year, we have a small change in our vegetation experiment compared with last year.
We are manipulating small plots by warming them with a little greenhouse (early warm spring)
or covering them for one week with snow (cold delayed spring).
Later in the season, we want to study the difference in plant biomass and plant quality.
And we want to offer manipulated turfs to the geese to see if they can recognize any difference.|
The project is also special, because it is a close cooperation with Prof. Qi Zhao from China. I met her in 2009 and last year we started trying to get a collaborative project. We did not succeed last year, but this year, she got a grant. Now we are working hard to combine our knowledge.
