The joint work by the biodiversity

As first step, CONICET will visit the lots to work and the suitable place will settle down. After this, it is necessary to leave native vegetation it grows with a minimum handling and finally it is continued to measure the amount of pollenizers and the varieties of flora.

The program multifunctional Landscapes
