S5. Do you follow an experimental design?
S6. How do you choose sites to be monitored ?
sampling sites chosen according to personnal/expert knowledge
S7. Your sampling design allow accounting for detection probability:
S8. Monitoring data are analysed by:
advanced statistics (spatial statistics/GIS, GLM, GAM, time series, etc)
S9. The minimum annual change you think you can statistically detect is:
