Biodiversity monitoring networks

Ecological monitoring networks provide technicians, researchers, and supervisors making decisions a georeferenced database and a GIS environment. These databases permit the evaluation of the state of ecosystems or communities studied and their changes with time, as well as the identification of those species which are most vulnerable to perturbations and environmental changes. 

Some examples of success which reflect the quality of this service are:  
  • Forest monitoring networks. DeBosCat: monitoring network of the health of Catalonian forests.
  • Long-term ecological monitoring networks. Collserola node – LTER Spain: Spanish Long-Term Ecological Research Network (Collserola Natural Park node).
  • Species monitoring network. Catalonian Butterfly Monitoring Scheme.
  • Elaboration of technical reports of results.
