Go belowground! with ecologists from Třeboň

From 15th to 21st September we organized third course for young scientists „Go belowground!“ introducing traits of belowground storage, regenerative and clonal growth organs of plants, methods for their measurements and their role in plant ecology. During the course participants have an opportunity to apply newly acquired knowledge in their own measurements and interpret them in context of plant communities. The course lead by researchers from Department of Functional Ecology in southern Bohemia close to town of Nové Hrady hosted 12 participants from United States, Norway, Sweden and Czech Republic. The course was supported by the Czech Academy of Sciences.
