Collecting samples in the Lauchsee moor, June 2012

 

Pillerseetreffen 2012

In the summer of 2012 I took numerous samples in several moors in Tirol, Austria, during the Pillersee seminar, a meeting for microscopist with all kind of interest. The moors are located around the village of Sankt Ulrich am Pillersee. My guide to these locations was Angie Opitz, an expert on these moors and peat bogs and organizer of the seminar.
