Field season started

This week we did our first visit to our experimental sites in Obergurgl after the winter. The reason behind this first field trip is that the farmers are bringing their sheeps to their alpine pastures. Hence, we yearly install our fences in early spring to protect our transplantation sites from grazing. Due to increased snow fall in late winter it was sometimes quite challenging to access our experimental sites but we finally succeeded.  Here are some impressions of our first trip this year.
