We have spent one week in Tenerife island (Canary Islands archipelago; Spain) sampling in laurel forests. In this fieldwork campaign, we have been accompanied by our colleague Nacho García-González, from Santiago de Compostela University, by two enthusiastic biology students from Rey Juan Carlos University, Laura Lozano and Paula García, and by our curious and dedicated friend Dani López. We have also counted on the support of José María Fernández-Palacios (University of La Laguna), who kindly shared his broad knowledge on laurel forests and the Canary Islands with us, helped in the fieldwork and advised on delightful dishes of Canarian cuisine. Thank you all for your contribution to this memorable fieldwork campaign!
This fieldwork campaign is framed into our research line with the aim of understanding the past and present laurel forest dynamics. The information derived from this research may help forest managers establish efficient practices to promote and preserve laurel forests in a warmer and drier future (further information in the Research section).
