Activities and events of the Vegetation Ecology Research Group
During the autumn semester, we are again pleased to welcome students, staff, and interested guests back on campus for the Research Colloquium Ecosystems and Biodiversity. From 22 November to 20 December, there will be a presentation in English every Wednesday from 4-5 pm, followed by an informal exchange and aperitif. We're looking forward to seeing many of you on these Wednesday afternoons at the "castle" in Wädenswil!
- 2019: This retreat was organised from 8-10 July 2019 in Grisons. We started with a visit in the show-diary in Parpan, where we learned about the art of cheese making, followed by a fox-trail in Lenzerheide. From our accommodation in Preda we explored on the next day flora and vegetation in the beautiful Val Mulix, the target of this year’s international summer school in August. On the last day, we initialised the sampling of plots for the international biodiversity network DarkDivNet, with species-rich grasslands and mires close to our accommodation.
- 2018: We explored for two days (10.-11.09.2018) the diverse xerothermic flora and vegetation of the south-facing slopes above Ausserberg, Valais. Some vegetation plots jointly jointly recorded during the retreat even form the basis for a scientific paper.
