One major challenge with biodiversity enhancement is the appropriate context to achieve full impact.
The location of an agricultural enterprise, its mode of farming as well as the surrounding natural habitats give rise to a distinct biodiversity context, which prescribes the measures that, should reasonably be applied for its improvement. Therefore, it is essential to screen this context in an initial survey. This includes the compilation of an inventory of species worthy of protection and of landscape structures that have to be preserved. Additionally, mapping and evaluation of all (semi-)natural habitats adjacent to the farmland should be conducted. Conclusions as to what to protect and improve can only be drawn once the local context is known.
Only thereafter, reasonable measures (actions) can be selected and suggestions for locations can be made.
While proper selection and careful siting are immensely important for targeted biodiversity enhancement, they is no guarantee for success.
Our professional team of experts offers long-term scientific support to monitor and assess the success of any measures taken. Monitoring can be conducted for a wide range of organism groups (e.g., birds, mammals, arthropods) and with our long-standing experience in field studies and extensive network of experts, we are uniquely qualified to provide outstanding service in this area.
The more comprehensive the review of the measures, the easier it is to implement any improvements that may be required.
Results and suggestions for improvement are presented by us in a clear and comprehensible manner and can, in addition to the scientific aspect, provide farmers and the public with information on the progress achieved.
