NDFF ProRail Habitat scan

Latest version published by Dutch National Database of Flora and Fauna (NDFF) on Mar 21, 2018 Dutch National Database of Flora and Fauna (NDFF)

Those who quickly want to develop a monitoring plan, without a baseline measurement, can carry out a quick habitat scan. In that case, types are roughly marked on a map (drawn on a map) in accordance with current ProRail vegetation maps, with additional information about relevant types, such as waters.

The mapped types in the table below can be used to deduce the probability of the occurrence of the protected species that needs to be mapped. In combination with the area (the occurrence as is presently known) and the location of suitable parts for the species (habitat scan) and in combination with species protocols, the monitoring can be scheduled across years and within the field season. There are various means available to carry out this scan without intensive fieldwork.
