About this book

Monitoring Nature Conservation in Cultural Habitats presents monitoring as an integral component of responsible conservation management and as a catalyst for decision making. The early sections of the book cover key areas in the development of a monitoring project, including:

- The roles of survey and surveillance

- Incorporating knowledge from existing research

- Identifying the conservation priority on sites

- Minimising observer error

- Identifying site-specific condition indicators for habitats

- Collecting monitoring data

The later sections of the book comprise a series of case studies covering a wide range of habitats and species. These case studies focus mostly, though not exclusively, on sites that form part of the Natura 2000 series in Europe.

Written in a clear and concise style, and illustrated in colour throughout, this practical guide is an invaluable reference for conservationists and ecologists responsible for managing and monitoring land for nature conservation, for organisations responsible for implementing agri-environment schemes, and for researchers working in the field of applied ecology.
