Nectar sampling on the plots

This year, in collaboration with researchers at Newcastle University, we'll be monitoring nectar on the plots; research that will help determine whether there's any difference in the quantity (volume) and/ or quality (sugar and amino acid concentrations) of nectar between the flowers of native and non-native plant species.
