Sampling in the Alps

In late September, we carried out another field campaign as part of our GACR treeline project. We spent an intense week in the Karwendel, Austria, and Val di Mazia, Italy, sampling Stone pine and European Larch at treelines. A big thank you to the team who made the best of the challenging conditions and worked efficiently on steep slopes and in snow and rain! Our thanks also go to all involved authorities for sampling permission and to Nikolaus Obojes (EURAC Research) for his support in the field.
