Biodiversity of naturally burnt forests

In the last weekend, Pavla has started with sampling of material for her master thesis. She focuses on influence of forest fires on biodiversity of moths, she thus samples material in several burnt openings in pine forests in the Kokořínsko Protected Landscape Area, as well as in control plots of undisturbed forests. In the last weekend, she has visited the pre-selected sites for the first time, and together with Robert and Pavel has successfully finished the first sampling. This sampling will continue for the rest of vegetation season every one to three weeks depending on the moon phases and weather. We are really curious for her results and findings!
