Scientific Research at Ramat Hanadiv

Ramat Hanadiv’s research aims to provide the scientific basis for the Nature Park management, enrich scientific knowledge, and build a long term database for the future to come. Since 1984, numerous studies have been conducted in the park, focusing on the ecological and human processes that occur in the ecosystem. An ‘Adaptive management’ approach is applied in order to gauge the effects of our management on the ecosystem. In 2003, Ramat Hanadiv joined the international Long-Term Ecological Research network (LTER).

Goat targeted grazing against nitrophilic thistles: milk thistle and Syrian thistle

Nitrophilic thistles such as milk thistle (Sylibum marianum) and Syrian thistle (Notobasis syriaca) encroach rangeland areas where animals gather and defecate, in particular around watering and feeding points. High densities of milk and Syrian thistles (MST) diminish forage yields and detract from the amenity value of these areas.

The Southern Carmel ridge is composed mainly of hard layered limestone and dolomite. It was created initially by folding movements and later on by faults and tectonic activity. The Carmel Mountain as well as its surrounding area was then raised and exposed to erosion. Erosion is still taking place today.
