Conservation Biology

About us


During my PhD, I will investigate the resilience of mountain grasslands to relaxation after intensification in the preceding years. To do so, we will monitor plants and invertebrates to assess the biodiversity values of the meadows both before and after experimental manipulation. This study is part of the mountain grassland project - see here.
