Prof. Dr. Jörg Ewald, manager of BAYSICS subproject 6, recommends this podcast of the Bavarian Broadcasting Corporation to get background knowledge for his project “Explore height limits of tree species by yourself”.

The Swiss stone pine is a tree that copes well even with extreme conditions. The tree of the high mountains defies cold and drought and grows where otherwise hardly any trees can be found.
