Dr. Mari-Liis Viljur will support the team of the Field Station Fabrikschleichach for the next 3 years. After completing her dissertation "Local and landscape effects on butterfly assemblages in managed forests" 2019 at the University of Tartu (Estonia), she will do research now on different species groups on decaying dead wood. We warmly welcome you: Tere tulemast!
The fieldstation Fabrikschleichach welcomed Prof. Anne Chao and Prof. Chun-Huo Chiu as guests at the station. The internationally renowned statisticians from Taiwan were informed about the current projects of the fieldstation. Together with the station team, they visited different experiments in the university forest and in the Nationalpark Bavarian Forest. The scientific cooperation between the participating institutes will be increased by fruitful discussions.
