In this project we would like to research the ecology of the "wood hare" and its influence on the forest in several sub-modules. The funding approved here relates to sub-module 3, which deals with the browsing of forest vegetation by brown hares and its effect on forest development, and to sub-module 4, in which the occurrence and population size of the brown hare in the forest will be investigated.
