The Krkonoše Mountains


Montane road in the Krkonoše Mountains in the Czech Republic

Lush green fields, pine forests and flower-rich alpine grasslands: our belowground project will go to the Czech Republic!


The Krkonoše Mountains lie in the northern part of the Czech Republic, on the border with Poland

After sampling soils, roots, plants and microclimates in Argentina, Chile, Norway, Sweden and Tenerife, the Czech MIREN team will now also join in and execute our detailed sampling protocol along their mountain road in the Krkonoše Mountains.

Another great regional dataset will thus soon be added to the list, to help us answer detailed questions on the effects of mountain roads on belowground conditions, and how that impacts the local vegetation.

Looking forward to see their data coming in!
