Everything must come to the end. This week, we finalized the field work at Leipzig crane – the very last field work of the BABE ERC Starting grant. While Sara collected her ants a week in advance, the rest of the team is spending the two last weeks of August by finalization of the experiment and cleaning of the forest. All cages needed to be taken down from the canopy and out of forest, broken down and packed. Insect from treatments and thousands of leaves were collected. Now, we have at least ca. 16 months of the project to go to analyze and sort everything.
