Memories from our "field laboratory" at Cep II sand pit

A place called a lagune. Six years ago flooded with water, nowadays dry and fast overgrowing. In 2015, we did not swim, but did science in practice: monitoring of aquatic macrophytes and plants of emerged bottoms!When comparing older photographs with those from this year, we are amazed by the speed of succession. The only spots with bare sand can be found only in places used for recreational activities (i.e. sunbathing, swimming) in the summer, and on the exposed tops of our experimental hills, which successfully slow down the succession (for details, hover your mouse over the photos). Experimental hills - they effectively slow down the succession! During a sunny day, you can still hear buzzing.A slope where we also established monitoring sites. In the background, there is a freshly established forestry reclamation. Nowadays, it is almost impossible to go through the tree stand in the background. The slopes also overgrow, although more slowly.
