Thesis work in LIFE-Goodstream discovered new project species
Sara Bishoff from The Brandenburg University of Technology, Germany, did her bachelor thesis here in Halmstad in LIFE-Goodstream. She studied factors determining the abundance of dragonflies in LIFE-Goodstream measures.
Among other things she found that vegetations is a crucial factor for dragonfly abundance and that our small amphibian ponds are good habitats also for dragonflies. Her sampling of dragonfly larvae also generated a new project species; white-legged damselfly (Platycnemis pennipes), see photo of that species above. The thesis can be found under Publications.
