Next Monday I will set out for a two months field campaign in Lithuania and Sweden. The travel will partly be collecting field data and partly performing mesocosmos experiments in southern Sweden. Among other things I will be doing a project exploring how species react to changes in a pond - lake network in the old agricultural landscape in southern Lithuania. One of the few places in Europe where the land is still plowed by hand and the hydrology in the agricultural landscape is more or less untouched. I will also venture into the large raised bogs in the coastal region of Lithuania. Some of the most westerly distributed boreal raised bogs in Europe.
Exiting stuff and of course there will be extensive rain in these areas throughout May and June.
Enjoy the summer.
