Pilot Study - Setling plates under lab conditions

A pilot study is being done with 5 setling plates from Quinta do Lorde that have been exposed to colonization for over 6 years. In laboratory conditions some species have performed better than others. Every 2 weeks a photo is taken of each setling plate and comparisons can be made at 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 and 12 weeks.

 

We challenge you to spot the differences!
