MAY / JUNE 2014 UPDATES

So after a bit of a gap, I have finally managed to get around to updating the blog with the last two pond surveys – May and June 2014.  Do check out the resurrections & restorations section to see how the ponds have changed.

I have also added a new section under resurrections & restorations – Aquaria study – assessing seedbank viability under controlled conditions. This section outlines the set-up and developments occurring in the aquarium-based component of the Ghost Ponds Project.  In some ways these developments are the most exciting of the whole project – because the aquaria are completely sealed from the environment, it is pretty much guaranteed that any germinations occurring are directly from the historic seedbank.
