Number of monitoring schemes by country. Countries are listed according to the number of recorded habitats schemes.

Number of schemes by habitat group. Habitat types follow the typology of the Flora, Fauna and Habitats Directive Annex I. If you selected html output, you can click a chosen column for more details.

Proportion of habitats schemes that do or do not aim to monitor all habitats within the monitoring area.

Percentage of habitat schemes using EUNIS, CORINE Land Cover, or other habitat classification schemes

The number of monitoring schemes that monitor some main types of causes of change.

The proportion of recorded monitoring schemes according to main funding sources.

The proportion of monitoring schemes according to their reasons for being launched.

Number and percentage of habitat schemes located entirely, partly or not at all in legally protected areas.

Professionals and volunteers involved in monitoring of main habitat types (cf FFH Directive Annex I). Figures are the sum across all relevant schemes in the database that provided answers.

Share of habitat schemes requiring training and expert knowledge.

Annual mean manpower and annual mean costs of equipment needed to run the schemes for main habitat types (cf FFH Directive Annex I).

Starting year of schemes.

Ending year of schemes.

The number of schemes aiming to monitor habitat distribution or composition for various habitat types (according to the FFH Annex I).

Proportion of habitat schemes collecting data on the presence/absence, abundance or both of certain species in monitored habitats.

The number of schemes collecting data on species presence/absence or abundance for habitat types.

Number of schemes carried out at EU, international, national, regional (sub-national) and local levels.

Number of schemes for various size ranges of the monitored area.

Number of schemes carried out at a selected geographical scale. The number of schemes is shown on a logarithmic scale.

Proportion of habitats monitoring schemes with stratified or non-stratified sampling designs.

Proportion of habitats monitoring schemes following an experimental or a non-experimental design.

Number of schemes which can statistically detect a minimum annual change of 1%, 5%, 10%, 20%, or more than 20%. This is based on the user’s own assessment.

Number of schemes using different number of sampling sites.

Number of schemes using different within-year sampling frequencies.

Number of schemes using different numbers of samples (e.g. transects, plots, quadrats) per sample site.
