Hans Kruijer and Michael Stech, new arrivals in Ny-Ålesund Racomitrium on the dry tundra Michael Stech and Hans Kruijer have received an ARCFAC grant to study moss vegetations. They work at the National Herbarium in Leiden, which has a large collection of arctic mosses.
These taxonomic experts have many ideas to expand their research into plant-animal interaction. Thiisbukta appears very interesting, with some rare species. They compare grazed mos vegetation with areas were geese have been exclosed for eight years. Also the dry tundra is very interesting. They will go home with a large box full with hundereds of samples. A lot of work awaits.
