Tree climbing course

Karolína and Jan during their first climbing steps.

In the last week, Jan, Karolina (new PhD student coming to our group in the next weeks), Hernani (our fresh new postdoc) and our friend Krystof Chmel participated on a tree climbing course organised by Slávek Hoblík from During the course, they have learned more about the equipment used for tree climbing, different knots, and different techniques of climbing trees at both low (3-8 meters) and high (20-30 meters) canopies. The course is highly relevant to our pollination research. All its participants will use the new experience during installing of cameras into canopies on Mount Cameroon in the coming field trip between late July and half September.
