Recently, we have finished the pilot experiment of transplant of zygopteran larvae and algae communities between a fly ash deposit and a sandpit. We were lucky to collect all cages during one of the last warm and sunny days of this autumn. All cages seemed alright, as well as their inhabitants. Although Andrea is still preparing the preliminary results, it seems we will be able to perform the full experiment next year!
