Biodiversity on Site

The organismic diversity on the site is continuously monitored and the data is forwarded to international platforms. A selection of plants, fungi, animals and other organisms is presented here. It may whet your appetite for a plant, bird or insect ‘safari’ that can be conducted on site and in the surrounding area. Further processing and analysis of samples and data will be possible under research permits, which will be applied for from the appropriate government agencies.
