Purpose
There are two highly equipped field experiments on the site, namely the VULCAN/INCREASE climate simulation experiment and the "extreme drought and precipitation simulation" experiment. There is also restoration and reintroduction research focuses on open sand grassland habitat and includes clear-cut black locust forest experiment, milkweed eradication, seeding by native species, and nitrogen immobilization trials. On a 50 ha monitoring site the vegetation dynamics of the high diversity protected Pannonian sand grassland is studied. Spontaneous restoration after abandonment of cultivation is studied on another 50 ha long-term monitoring site.
