D2. Monitoring of action effects on orchids and rare steno-Mediterranean species

Euphorbia exigua

The action D2 is in progress.

This aims to evaluate the effect of the actions, for recovery and conservation measures (e.g. clearing of individual tree species to help with colonizing and grazing - in spring and autumn) on the populations of orchids and rare steno-Mediterrany species existing in the areas of intervention.

The action of monitoring includes the creation of sampling assays, used in conjunction with the monitoring network defined in action A5, in order to compare the effect of the management with the pre-existing conditions. The assays will be carried out precisely with grounded, fixed metal poles and used in correspondence with the plot, pre-intervention, to confront any differences between the samples.

The data collected during the surveys will be developed each year, to allow an upgrade of the technical parameters of the guidelines for the management and to ensure the achievement of the goals of the project.
