A field week for a group of master students from Erlangen was organised by Achim Bräuning and Sonja Szymczak in July. Dendroecological, botanical and pedological site surveys were conducted in beech and pine forests at the slopes of Monte Renoso. The investigations shall help to better understand the spatial distribution of different forest types and to determine weather the distribution is controlled by ecological parameters or fire frequency.
