S1. Scheme aims at monitoring:
population trend

community composition
S2. The main data you collect are:
counts (plant density estimates belong here)

YES
S4. Is your sampling design stratified?
NO
S5. Do you follow an experimental design?
no
S6. How do you choose sites to be monitored ?
other
S7. Your sampling design allow accounting for detection probability:

graphics/descriptive statistics
S9. The minimum annual change you think you can statistically detect is:
20%

S14. If you want, provide the name of the field methods used for sampling:
snap-trapping of small mammals by 5 traps per 40-100 stations at 25m intervals alng transects, for 2 or 3 nights (varies between sites) in Aug-Oct

S30. In what types of habitat do you monitor these species?
Heathland, scrub and tundra
Woodland, forest and other wooded land
S31. Can you infer causes responsible for observed changes from monitoring data?
YES
S32. The causes of change you monitor are:
land use
S33. Were some previous categories not appropriate for describing your monitoring scheme?
samling and analytical methods rather unspecific
