In my research I focus on the short term responses of plants and invertebrates after restoration of extensively managed meadows in the Swiss lowlands. This research is part of the wider lowland grassland project, see here.
In particular, I am assessing the effectiveness of four different restoration methods: hay transfer on ploughed or harrowed meadows, and seed addition from commercial produced seed mixtures or from local natural harvested seeds.
