Progress on the Mediterranean pine experimental site (video)
On 20th July, CESEFOR partner established two plots in Cañón del Río Lobos. This is part of one action of the work package “Silviculture and management of Mediterranean forests” from ONEforest for a European study to evaluate the effect of different management schedules on the water balance of Pinus nigra stands.
Different sites were evaluated to determine the most representative Pinus nigra stands in the area. One of the plots was established as control, without forest management intervention in the last 30 years and another one was established in a site managed in the last 15 years.
This is a Mediterranean pine experimental site that will be part of a European network with plots in Catalonia, Slovenia, and Italy.
Ángela Blázquez, Luis Eduardo Molina, and Javier de Dios were the team that carried out these tasks including forest inventory of trees, saplings, seedlings, and understory. Soil sampling and tree coring. These data will be processed and evaluated through the Medfate R package.
