Pollinator fauna in restored grasslands

Since 2011, we have been restoring grasslands from conifer monocultures. At present c. 100 ha of former plantations are now becoming grasslands by using cattle. In this project you will determine pollinator fauna (butterflies, bees) along transects and with other methods (traps). A comparison with non-cut spruce plantations can be done in the project.

 

Flora succession on restored grasslands

How does flora develop in former forest plantation under cattle grazing. This project seeks to quantify the change in vegetation that has taken place over ten years in the c 100 ha of restored grassland, that was previously dark plantations of Norway spruce, virtually without any vascular plants.
