Le Mega Quadrat!

In Edinburgh the annual margins are blooming away, but accurately estimating the number of flowers is proving a little tricky as many species are patchy in their distribution. To compare various sampling strategies, Pierre - our quadrateur formidable - has designed a mega quadrat! It has so far been unleashed upon two margins and will hopefully reveal the best way to count flowers.

  1. We've had similar issues, trying to assess what are really quite large areas of often very mixed plant species - I'm interested to hear how you get on with this!
