Habitat Monitoring In The Alun Valley

Habitat Monitoring In The Alun Valley
Sunday 29th April to Sunday 20th May 2018
Alun Valley, Vale Of Glamorgan

We’ll probably select three Sunday mornings and six weekdays during this 3 week period to operate habitat transects.

The idea here is to set up a “transect” line which represents the habitat characteristics of sub-sites managed at some point 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. 2018 is one such year.
