Large grant: role of pollen limitation in masting

I just received large grant from Polish National Science Foundation (over 100 000 euro) to run some cool masting experiments 😉 We will experimentally evaluate the role pollen limitation as a synchronizing factor in masting of oaks. We are going to test both density-dependence of pollen limitation, as well as phenology-dependence of it (see e.g. our recent Ecology paper on this topic).

The field work will be done in Spain, on Q. ilex, in collaboration with Mario B Pesendorfer, Raul Bonal, Elizabeth Crone, and Josep Espelta.
