Field work in the woods

Our collaborators (specialized in ecology) from irstea - National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture in Nogent surf Vernisson work in the woods to collect quantitative data on birds.

The aim is to better understand the relationships between birds and the structure of their habitat. We're particularly interested in the woodpecker who depends very closely to the forest.
An interesting reference in this regard, is the following publication by our collaborator Yoan Paillet:
