Finally this years‘ field season has started: Last week we began with the biomass removal of the above-ground neighborhood vegetation on our low-competition plots in Obergurgl and on Mt. Schrankogel. To our pleasure we could relocate almost all of our more than 3.000 marked individuals on Mt. Schrankogel and of the 4.700 individuals in Obergurgl. Now everything is prepared for the measurements which will start on the 26th of July on Mt. Schrankogel.
