EuMon Final workshop approaching
VISIT http://www.eumon.ufz.de/ for registration
With the implementation of the European nature
conservation directives (Habitats and Birds Directive) it became a
legal obligation for each EU member state to regularly report on the
conservation status of its wild flora and fauna. To evaluate the status
of species and habitats it is necessary to continuously observe and
document their development in the long term. This is already being done
for many of the approximately 100.000 animal and 14.000 plant species
in Europe. But in spite of the large number of monitoring systems, it
remains difficult to determine the national and international
conservation status of species and habitats. Therefore
coordinating monitoring efforts and data across Europe will increase
relevance and potential implications of monitoring outputs.
The EuMon-Project was launched to develop such a coordinating framework and herewith invites you to the final meeting.
The conference and workshops address members
and representatives from NGOs and nature conservation agencies as well
as scientists and policy makers.
