The students and GLOBE teachers of Daruvar Technical School have continued their research on invasive species in Daruvar by applying GLOBE protocols for land cover investigation. They wanted to determine the difference in the number of invasive species, the timing and the manner of introduction to the green spaces in Daruvar, as well as their role in the cities. From June 2018 to March 2019, the location and height MUC (UNESCO land cover classification) were determined, as well as the circumference of maple ash (acer negundo) and acacia trees in the city were determined. Out of 14 invasive plants, five are invasive allochthonous species of trees and shrubs. The analysis of introduction and distribution of these five species indicates that they do not tend to spread as invasive plants, although they do take up space of autochthonous species which are important for biodiversity of the area. By investigating invasive plants and participating in GLOBE campaigns, we contribute to the protection of trees in the town.

Dragi učenici i mentori pohvaljujem vašu motiviranot i želju za istraživanjem. Priložili ste vaš istraživački projekt - Representation of the invasive species of trees shrubs in Daruvar - 2 koji je vrlo zanimljiva i poučan. Također mi drago da ovakvo istraživanje niste ostavili samo u okvirima škole nego ste ga predstavili i javnosti. Imam jedno pitanje;
1. Planirate li nastavit ovaj projekt tako da istražite još jedan dio grada?
