Description

For 2 days a small group of PhD students will go hiking around Rosswald and Binn (Saflischtal & Binntal, Valais, Switzerland) accompanied by a specialist in the alpine flora. They will spend the night at the Gasthaus Heiligkreuz.

Students will study plants in link with their PhD projects, or the research conducted in their labs, and will prepare a presentation for the group on a publication, in relation to their research and the plants observed in the field.
Cases of plant-insect coevolution, plant adaptation to freezing in high mountains, observation of the rhizosphere, parasitism in plants, relationships between soil acidity and plant composition, and morphological variations of plants due to environmental pressures will be presented and discussed. Students can access the Gasthaus Heiligkreuz (1472 m), where we will identify plants and get some rest, by train, telecabine, bus and on foot.
