Assessment of regeneration plots

The assessment of plots for regeneration had to be done by a local team. In selected areas for reforestation (Shata – Boswellia socotrana subsp. aspleniifolia, Diburak – Boswellia elongata) a survey was conducted to find seedlings from natural regeneration. Exclosure experiment for evaluation of natural regeneration development was prepared. Two plots of size 50 x 50 m are compared in each area, one fenced, second unprotected against grazing. All seedlings found were labelled and measured (height in cm, stem diameter by the ground in mm and number of leaves). The measurement will be repeated in a one-month interval.
