Monitoring involves numerous tools, protocols and technological innovations, often adapted for specific taxa or biomes. In the near future we will showcase some key examples and case studies on this site.
On this site in early 2021, you will be able to download papers on biodiversity monitoring methods and tools produced by the Group, as well as guidelines and case studies.
Examples of freely available material coming soon include:
