Summer is upon us! Heaven for a botanist like me, with all shades of green and sparks of color popping up wherever you look.
Two consecutive winters of stubborn species studying is now again put to the test, and the results are promising: I think I have never recognised more plant species than now.
Yet the real test is still a few weeks away, when the snows finally melt above the polar circle in Scandinavia. Then I have to know them all, to resurvey the plots we put out there 5 years ago.
