Summary

Full Title

Pink-permanent surveillance of coastal areas: Odonata

Description

The PINK-project 'Permanent Inventory of Nature Reserves along the Coast' was commissioned by the Agency for Nature and Forest in 2007. The project started with the aim of mapping the natural values on the coast in a more systematic way. A first phase of three years ran until 2010, (PINK I) a second phase (PINK II)from 2012-2014 and the third is scheduled from 2014-2018. In the first period, the methodology was finalized and an initial assessment was conducted. The project PINK II is a continuation of the main components but also includes a number of specific issues such as invasive species and grasshoppers. Also in the third phase, the main monitoring components are continued. This dataset contains occurrences of the Odonata, observed during PINK I and PINK II. The data is published as a sample based dataset.

Purpose

The PINK data are collected in order to to map biodiversity values in nature reserves in coastal areas. This dataset contains the Odonata subset.

Methodology

Study extent

In PINK I (2007-2010), 141 ponds or waters were visited, at least one time. 5 ponds in the Noordduinen were inventoried on a yearly basis. About 60 ponds along the Belgian coast were monitored for Odonata during the period 2012-2014 (Pink II).

Sampling description

Every pond was monitored 3 times in every season, and a sampling event typically takes 15 minutes. These counts were conducted at the end of May/ beginning of June and/or half July/ end Augustus. Larger ponds, surrounded by much vegetation, needed about 20-25 minutes for a similar inventory and the two largest ponds would take an hour. For all observations, individuals were counted and phenology and sex were recorded if possible. Also reproductional behavior was recorded. Counts were mostly conducted between 10 and 16 hrs. Separate observations were recorded in http://waarnemingen.be
