S1. Scheme aims at monitoring:
population trend

distribution trend

community composition
S2. The main data you collect are:
counts (plant density estimates belong here)
S3. Do you collect information on population structure?
NO
S4. Is your sampling design stratified?
NO
S5. Do you follow an experimental design?
no
S6. How do you choose sites to be monitored ?
systematic sampling (eg each cell of a grid)
S7. Your sampling design allow accounting for detection probability:
YES
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:
20%

324000 km2
S12. At how many sampling sites your scheme is implemented?
500
S13. How many samples do you collect per sampling site?
20
S14. If you want, provide the name of the field methods used for sampling:
potentially country-wide set of approximately 500 grid points, each with 20 sample points along 1.5x1.5km square transect, visual and audible clues of all birds counted for 5 min at each sample point, plus obs. of rarer species between points
S15. What is the frequency of monitoring?
every 1 year(s)
S16. How many times do you sample per year?
1

2005
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:
5
S22. Number of volunteers involved in the scheme:
200
S23. Is training / expert knowledge required to take part to field/lab work for your scheme?
YES
S24. On the whole, what is the manpower (in person.day) needed per year to run the scheme (data collection, coordination, analysis)?
1100
S25. How much do you spend on material and equipment per year (in €)?
10000
S26. Taxonomic groups monitored:
WATERBIRDS
RAPTORS
SONG BIRDS & NEAR-PASSERINES
OTHER BIRDS

200
S28. List species of Community interest monitored:
Not specified...
S29. Any additional species
* without answer
S30. In what types of habitat do you monitor these species?
Coastal and halophytic habitats




Freshwater habitats




Raised bogs, mires, and fens




Natural and semi-natural grassland formation




Heathland, scrub and tundra




Woodland, forest and other wooded land




Inland unvegetated or sparsely vegetated habitats




Regularly cultivated agricultural, horticultural and domestic habitats




Constructed, industrial and other artificial habitats




Habitat complexes
S31. Can you infer causes responsible for observed changes from monitoring data?
YES
S32. The causes of change you monitor are:
land use
pollution
climatic change
S33. Were some previous categories not appropriate for describing your monitoring scheme?
Note that info given pertains to foreseen complete country-wide scheme, which is currently in a pilot phase
