Fences ready for CarniForeGraze fieldwork
This summer the CarniForeGraze project has been getting ready for its first field season in Grue Finnskog. There Laura Niccolai (field assistant) and Pierre Lissillour (intern) have set up fences for the biodiversity sampling. The fences are set up to measure the impact of cattle grazing on young forest stands. Specifically they will register the height and current damage of each tree and assess the biodiversity of plants and insects. Each fence also has an unfenced control area. This area is monitored with a wildlife camera.
Take a look at a great video of the set up, made by Pierre:
