Tobias left to Switzerland on Saturday, after being the week looking for Erysimum populations in the Baetic mountains.
The survey and sampling was succesful, since we collected tissue from seven species (E. baeticum, E. nevadense, E. mediohispanicum, E. myriophyllum, E. bastetanum, E. cazorlense, E. popovii) and seeds from E. incanum in five mountain ranges, from Sierra Harana en Cogollos-Vegas (Granada) to Sierra de Los Cuartos in Santiago de la Espada (Jaén).
Our trip in twitter:
Exploring the Baetic mountains of southern Spain for three days, visiting populations of 8 Erysimum species and observing a diversity of herbivorous interactions. Highly stimulating! #erysimum #herbivory #fieldwork #Andalucia pic.twitter.com/3aHQ0urLlH
