Surveys of the vegetation in existing stormwater areas: 2. Follow-up of the development of the vegetation in newly established stormwater areas: 3. Container trials of different plant species and different soils.

Outputs

Guidelines for the use of plant species in stormwater areas are made for implementation. The results of the trials are published in scientific papers and for professionals.
