South Wales: Habitat Monitoring In The Alun Valley
Sunday 30th April to Sunday 28th May 2017
Alun Valley

We’ll probably select two Sunday mornings and two weekdays during this month to operate habitat transects.

The idea here is to set up a “transect” line which represents the habitat characteristics of sub-sites managed for the first time in recent years specifically the violet-feeding fritillaries. Usually these transects are recorded by measuring key vegetation data in six one metre square “quadrats”.

Every four years, all sub-sites are reassessed using the same methodology, so that the changes in habitat and effect of management are measurable.
