Israeli Butterfly Monitoring Scheme (BMS-IL)
The main objective of the scheme is to provide reliable data for assessing the status and trends in the abundance and phenology of Israel's butterﬂies, for both conservation and research purposes.
All sampling events in this dataset are recorded at the section level. Users who wish to derive butterfly density, please sum up all butterflies observed in all sections within a given transect, and calculate the area as "total-transect-length x 5m". The total number of sections within a given transect can be found in the measurements or facts data.
