Liana Celastrus orbiculatus

The woody vine (Celastrus orbiculatus) can be observed naturally growing in the Far East, from Russia to southeast China and Japan. In the United States of America, this species has long been considered one of the most aggressive invasive plant species, and the control of its spread has become the focus of attention both by scientists and the public. In Europe, the species was detected over 60 years ago; however, no significant research on its distribution in Europe has emerged. To date, the species is observed in 13 European countries. In Lithuania, Celastrus orbiculatus was recorded in 2014.

Experimental research by NRC's Laboratory of Fish Ecology

The researchers of the Laboratory of Fish Ecology of Nature Research Centre are conducting a research experiment with pike larvae/fry. The growing of pike fry in closed recirculation systems is very complicated – only live food (zooplankton) is used for feeding. Therefore, during the experiment, pike are being grown in creels set in a pond, i.e. "in nature". A creel is composed of a frame floating above water and a silk "cage" under water where fish are kept. Illumination is installed to attract zooplankton to the creels. Illuminated creels look interesting at night
