Light on nature

It is usually pitch dark here at night. But not now.

 Special lamps are beaming red, green and white light over this little bit of Veluwe nature near Kootwijk. The aim is to see what effect artificial light has on plants and animals. That's Wageningen research (in Nature Management and Plant Ecology) in practice for you. Note the beautiful night sky (Orion).
