VolterraNews MycoRestore

On December 12, a team composed by Oscar González, Zuleica García (CSIC-IRNASA), Tamara Sánchez, Mariano Rodríguez (UVA), and Iván Franco (IDFOREST) visited the demonstrative areas at El Cubo de Don Sancho, Salamanca.

As part of the preparatory action “Mapping Forest Health” (A.1), the working team identified healthy areas and those areas where diseases and/or pests are present within the demonstrative areas of the project. In these ‘problem’ areas, photosynthesis measurements were taken on each selected tree. The team also collected soil, wood, and bark samples from the different selected areas to carry out forest health assessments at later stages of the LIFE Mycorestore project.
