The EuMon integrated Biodiversity Monitoring & Assessment Tool|
|Assessing the coverage of species and habitat monitoring schemes in Europe|
|Number of monitoring schemes by country. Countries are listed according to the number of recorded species schemes.|
|Number of monitoring schemes by species group. The species monitored were divided into six organism groups – birds, mammals, other vertebrates, invertebrates, plants and other. If you selected html output, you can click a chosen column for more details.
|Number of species schemes that monitor various numbers of species within their scheme.
|The number of monitoring schemes that monitor some main types of causes of change.|
|The proportion of recorded monitoring schemes according to main funding sources. |
|The proportion of monitoring schemes according to their reasons for being launched. |
|Number and percentage of species schemes located entirely, partly or not at all in legally protected areas.|
|Professionals and volunteers involved in species monitoring. Figures are the sum across all relevant schemes in the database that provided answers.|
|Share of species schemes requiring training and expert knowledge.
|Annual mean manpower and annual mean costs of equipment needed to run the schemes for various species groups.
|Starting year of schemes.|
|The number of schemes aiming to monitor population trends, distribution trends, or community/ecosystem trends for various species groups.|
|Proportion of species schemes according to the main types of data collected.|
|The number of schemes collecting data on species presence/absence, counts, mark-recapture, age/size structure or phenology for species groups. |
|Number of schemes carried out at EU, international, national, regional (sub-national) and local levels.|
|Number of schemes for various size ranges of the monitored area. |
|Proportion of species monitoring schemes where the monitoring sites were chosen by exhaustive, random, or systematic sampling, personal or expert knowledge or other methods.|
|Proportion of species monitoring schemes with stratified or non-stratified sampling designs.|
|Proportion of species monitoring schemes following an experimental (according to type of design) or a non-experimental design. |
|Proportion of schemes that do or do not account for the detection probability of species.
|Number of schemes which can statistically detect a minimum annual change of 1%, 5%, 10%, 20%, or more than 20%. This is based on the user’s own assessment.|
|Number of schemes using different number of sampling sites.|
|Number of schemes using different within-year sampling frequencies.|
|Number of schemes using different numbers of samples (e.g. transects, plots, quadrats) per sample site.|
|Number of schemes that collect data annually, every 2-3 years etc.|
|The number of monitoring schemes employing various statistical or other techniques to analyse monitoring data for various species groups.|
