Project description

Optimal mowing patterns will be developed to restore the biodiversity of plants and pollinators in grasslands. These patterns will take into account grassland characteristics (local scale) and pollinator observation databases (broader scale). This novel strategy is field-data-demanding, requiring automated plant identification. This will be developed by advanced computer vision and AI techniques on visual footage of grasslands captured by drones.
