Second monitoring of the Isola Lunga reinforcement site

The second monitoring survey was carried out on the reinforcement intervention carried out in December 2020 at Isola Lunga. Compared to the previous monitoring, a slight increase in the mortality rate was detected, and currently about 33% of the 250 plants planted survived. 36% of them show symptoms of water stress. Nonetheless, 27% of the plants bear flower buds, 8% are in bloom and 2% already produced seeds. The impact of browsing of feral rabbits (and perhaps of black rats) on the local population remains critical, considering that 12% of the plants show preyed flowers.
