Biodiversity Monitoring South Tyrol

The Biodiversity Monitoring South Tyrol is an ongoing survey of our inventory of nature. The monitoring provides the scientific basis for political decisions concerning spatial planning, agriculture, and nature conservation. It surveys sensitive species groups that react to climate and land-use changes. Apart from single taxonomic groups, the survey includes the landscape and habitats of the areas surrounding the survey point. All this information is assessed in 320 terrestrial and 120 aquatic sites distributed over the entire area of South Tyrol (7400 km2) including of the most important habitats of our region. The monitoring studies both managed habitats and near-natural habitats like forests, wetlands, and alpine sites.

The Biodiversity Monitoring South Tyrol has been set up under the lead of Eurac Research in collaboration with the Museum for Nature South Tyrol, the Nature Conservation Department, and the Agriculture Department of the Autonomous Province Bolzano-South Tyrol.
