In June 2014 TREE participants from NERC-CEH and University of Salford visited the Universadad de Extremadura (Caceres, Spain) to discuss collaboration on field sampling in Spain in order to help develop novel transfer models. This link was facilitated by Ciemat (Spain) via the EC funded COMET project with whom we are collaborating - some photographs from the trip appear below.

Sampling was subsequently conducted at the site which is an area of semi-natural grassland-forest (or 'dehesa') within the Monfrag├╝e Natural Park.
