Sampling sites visualized on a map

07/19/2017

A major sampling effort undertaken within GenTree can now be appreciated through an interactive map available on our website.

The color-coded dots indicate the location and main tree species of the sampling sites in different forest ecosystems along environmental gradients, from the southern borders of Europe on the Mediterranean Sea, up to Finland in the North.

You can explore the map by clicking on the arrows in the top left corner, where a legend appears explaining to what species each color is associated. By clicking on the dots, more information about the site will pop up, together with a photo and a link to more information, such as additional images, blogs or other resources.

Just a few sampling sites are missing, but the overall picture of what has been sampled is taking shape. The map is continuously updated and will be available in its final form by the end of the year, when the field campaign is finished.
