S1. Scheme aims at monitoring:
distribution trend
S2. The main data you collect are:
S3. Do you collect information on population structure?
S4. Is your sampling design stratified?
S5. Do you follow an experimental design?
yes a design with Before/After comparison and control treatment
S6. How do you choose sites to be monitored ?
exhaustive sampling (all possible sites)
S7. Your sampling design allow accounting for detection probability:
S8. Monitoring data are analysed by:
data are analysed by someone else
S9. The minimum annual change you think you can statistically detect is:
S10. Are your sampling sites located in legally protected areas?
S11. The total area monitored by your scheme covers:
78 km2
S12. At how many sampling sites your scheme is implemented?
S13. How many samples do you collect per sampling site?
S14. If you want, provide the name of the field methods used for sampling:
visual observations +/-
S15. What is the frequency of monitoring?
every 1 year(s)
S16. How many times do you sample per year?
S17. How much time (in do you need for one sampling occasion?
S18. Starting year of scheme:
S19. Ending year of scheme:
* without answer
S20. Has your monitoring procedure changed during this time period?
No, apart some minor adjustments of the protocol
S21. Number of professionals involved in the scheme:
S22. Number of volunteers involved in the scheme:
S23. Is training / expert knowledge required to take part to field/lab work for your scheme?
S24. On the whole, what is the manpower (in needed per year to run the scheme (data collection, coordination, analysis)?

Not specified...
S29. Any additional species
Lepidoptera mainly Rhopalocera
We prepare mapping of Heterocera: Lasiocampidae, Lemoniidae, Saturniidae, Sphingidae, Drepanidae, Notodontidae, Arctiidae, Lymantriidae; large families like Noctuidae and Geometridae and Microlepidoptera we start mapping in future
S30. In what types of habitat do you monitor these species?
Habitat complexes
S31. Can you infer causes responsible for observed changes from monitoring data?
S32. The causes of change you monitor are:
habitat loss and fragmentation
S33. Were some previous categories not appropriate for describing your monitoring scheme?
* without answer
