Last days we have been sampling plant species composition and cover in our experimental seeding plots.

Our goal is to evaluate the effectiveness of the seeding with different soil treatments. We built a 50 cm x 50 cm frame divided into 20 squares (10 cm x 10 cm). We recorded plant species presence, bare soil and plant necromass in each one of the intersections 36 points.
In order to obtain a representative sample, measures have been taken in each experimental plot: 2 samplings from the covered part of the plot and 2 samplings from the uncovered part. We repeated the sampling in the 3 replicates.

We are obtaining total plant cover, cover per species, abundance, richness and species composition for our statistical analysis.
