Abstract: 

Soil data of LTER Zöbelboden, Austria. Soil inventory is carried out since 1992 on regular positions (approx 65) in the catchment measuring soil chemistry. Soil water chemistry is measured in forest plots (2-3) using lysimeter sampling and analyses on a bi-weekly to monthly basis. Soil hydraulic characterizations exist for the major soil types in the catchment. Soil CO2 and N2O respiration data is available for some years

Abstract: 

Data on bird presence and abundance in Doñana is available since the 50ties, even before its protection. EBD-CSIC started standardized monitoring by aerial counts in the 70ties, initially focused on wintering birds but since de early 80ties counts are conducted monthly, and up to 50 bird species are identified in 52 counting areas within the marshes. Terrestrial bird count of main bird concentrations of Doñana have been conducted at the same time (both EBD-CSIC and Park Management) but were not standardized until 2002 by EBD-CSIC. Since then, monthly surveys have been conducted covering about 87 water bodies of the marshes and from fixed observation points (up to 196 water bird species are included). Additionally, each month, a transect (30 km) count of birds (all non-passerine species and Corvus corax) present at the beach and sea shore is done by car. Furthermore, during spring, colonial water bird nests are located and chicks ringed when possible. Several colonies have been monitored since the 80ties. Non-colonial waterbird nests are located monthly during the breeding season using linear transects on horse in the marshes, totalling about 65 km. These transects data are being collected since 2003. Earlier data on non-colonial breeding waterbirds are more disperse, although ringing activities have been done since the 70ties on regular bases.

Tatra National Park (Poland) - PLANNED nature monitoring - ANIMALS

Activity Icon

Data Product Type: 

  • Focal species

Related Site: 

Abstract: 

PLANNED (as of August 2016) regular monitoring activities of the Park's Natura 2000 habitats are specified in the new Park Protection Plan (currently in the final project stage, pending final approval and implementation resolution by the Minister of Environment). They'll altogether comprise 19 bird species, 8 mammal species (incl. 2 sp. of bats, wolf, brown bear, lynx, Tatra marmot, chamois), 2 amphibian species and 2 invertebrate species (beetles). Methodology-wise, depending on the species, they'll be conducted as 1 to several monitoring rounds/inspections performed annually or at several-year intervals, in most cases in a season-dependent manner, and will involve various, species-specific methods (field observations, tracking, transect counts, site inspection, counting/inventory of nests, colonies or dens/burrows, analysis of habitat area or condition, genetic sampling, etc. etc.). For the purpose of the Park's Protection Plan, nature inventory and assessment of the current state of conservation of the above-mentioned species was conducted and indicated by FV or U1 (no U2s or XXs, luckily) with respect to 3 parameters: population, habitat, future prospect - plus the cumulative value. The data may be available at the Park.

Soil characteristics and Carbon fluxes

Data Product Type: 

  • Soil

Related Site: 

Abstract: 

Carbon fluxes between soil, vegetation and atmosphere are only partially known for mountain grasslands, also owing to the complex geological matrix, to the wide variations in soil depth and sub-soil characteristics (e.g., solid rock, fractured rocks, coarse moraine material, etc…), and to the unknown response of the fluxes to extreme impact events and climate variability. Soil samples were collected in 2016 in Noaschetta from grassland plots in different sites at different depth (5-15 cm) for physical-chemical analyses (organic carbon, nitrogen, inorganic carbon, pH, conductivity, grain size). CO2 fluxes in Noaschetta have been measured since 2016 in two sites (Piangirot and Piansengio) in grazed and ungrazed plots. Since 2017, flux measurements have been started at Piani del Nivolet (2700 m a.s.l.) in 4 plots, each having an average area of about 250 square meters, characterized by different geological substrata. For each plot a soil pit were digged and soil samples at different depth collected for chemistry and C-stable isotopes characterization. Measurements are available during the summer period monthly, together with soil temperature and volumetric water content, air temperature and humidity, radiance. Since August 2019, CO2 and H2O fluxes data are acquired every 30 minutes using eddy covariance methods.
