Please get in touch if you are interested in participating!
Each participant in this add-on study will be asked to collect, process and send additional soil samples from each core plot or ‘site’ (‘natural site’ and ‘anthropogenic site’) at each habitat.
The estimated amount of time for this study is 4.5 hours per site (1.5h in the field, 3h in the lab). Participants in this add-on study complying with the protocol guidelines are entitled to be included as a co-author of those papers that use data from their study area (please see note to participants in the protocol guidelines for more specific information).
Soil collection can be carried out at the same time as the field survey for DarkDivNet. If this is not feasible, make sure to conduct the sampling during the growing season. Please contact the coordinators if you have any question.
