Research of moths after forest fires

Forest plot spontaneously regrowing after natural fire.

Pavla continues with the sampling of data on diversity of moths in previously burnt and undisturbed forests for her master thesis. This year, she samples at the beautiful sandstone landscape of Bohemian Switzerland NP, in northwestern Czech Republic. With the help of a few other group members, she has just finished the fifth sampling session of this season and she is getting ready for the next one. In the meantime, she is also finishing identification of all ~23,000 moths sampled in 2018 in Kokořínsko. We all are looking forward to the results!
