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 habitats schemes. |
|Number of schemes by habitat group. Habitat types follow the typology of the Flora, Fauna and Habitats Directive Annex I. If you selected html output, you can click a chosen column for more details.
|Proportion of habitats schemes that do or do not aim to monitor all habitats within the monitoring area.
|Percentage of habitat schemes using EUNIS, CORINE Land Cover, or other habitat classification schemes|
|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 habitat schemes located entirely, partly or not at all in legally protected areas.
|Professionals and volunteers involved in monitoring of main habitat types (cf FFH Directive Annex I).
Figures are the sum across all relevant schemes in the database that provided answers.|
|Share of habitat schemes requiring training and expert knowledge.|
|Annual mean manpower and annual mean costs of equipment needed to run the schemes for main habitat types (cf FFH Directive Annex I).
|Starting year of schemes.|
|The number of schemes aiming to monitor habitat distribution or composition for various habitat types (according to the FFH Annex I).|
|Proportion of habitat schemes collecting data on the presence/absence, abundance or both of certain species in monitored habitats.|
|The number of schemes collecting data on species presence/absence or abundance for habitat types.|
|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.|
|Number of schemes carried out at a selected geographical scale. The number of schemes is shown on a logarithmic scale.
|Proportion of habitat schemes with remote sensing or field mapping methods used for documentation of spatial variation.|
|Proportion of habitats monitoring schemes where the monitoring sites were chosen by exhaustive, random, or systematic sampling, personal or expert knowledge, or other methods.|
|Proportion of habitats monitoring schemes with stratified or non-stratified sampling designs.|
|Proportion of habitats monitoring schemes following an experimental or a non-experimental design.|
|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 different habitat types (FFH Directive Annex I).|
