During winter is better to be at the sun to avoid freezing. But some species survive because they look for the chilliest place. We are going to look for them. Yesterday we knew that the project led by Ignacio García Plazaola from Basque Country University «Las «pozas de frío» de los Parques Nacionales Españoles: ¿micro-REfugios de BiodivErsidad ante un clima CAmbiante?/The «cold pools» of the Spanish National Parks: micro-refuges of BiodivErsity in the face of a changing climate? has been awarded. Two members of Cambium research group (Gabriel Sangüesa and José Miguel Olano) will participate in this project that will involve working in Sierra Nevada, Picos de Europa and Teide National Park.
A nice opportunity to work with the marvellous net of Spanish National Parks
Vega de Liordes is a karst depression in Picos de Europa National Park. This meteorological station at just 1872 m has the lowest temperature recorded in Spain ever -35.8ºC in January 7th 2021.
