LIFE+ MOTH: monitoring terrestrial habitats

NILS follows the biological diversity by monitoring the landscape with random sampling in 631 permanent sample plots, systematically distributed in Sweden. The sampling unit consists of 5x5 km plots where data is collected by manual interpretation of infra-red aerial images, and by field collection in plots and along sampling transects. Data is collected on land cover, land use, vegetatation parameters, tree cover, abundance of functional plant categories as well as a selected list of vascular plant species, mosses, and lichens.
