Mapping - the last days

These last days of summer and good weather we are trying to complete the alien vegetation map of Corvo Island. With the help of Beatriz and Rosemary we were able to map around 60% of th island total area. They finish the volunteer program but the work goes on.
The preliminary data show the Great leaf Hydrangea has the most abundant specie that occur in higher altitude of Corvo.
The image below is possible to see:
- in black the distribution of Big Leaf Hydrangea
- in red the distribution of Tamarisk
- in blue the distribution of the Australian Cheesewood

Soon we will update this information and publish online.
We appreciate all the help given by the volunteers.
