Hot summer day in the heathlands of Kalmthout, north of Antwerp, last week. With a team of two PhD students and four master students, we had a trial fieldwork day for this summer in northern Sweden.
Trying out vegetation surveys, preparing practicalities and looking at plants. 75% of species we saw in this Flemish heathland matched with those we find above the polar circle!
So ready to make this summer happen for the students, despite the tons of extra chaos due to Covid!
