NDFF Botanical inventory surveys North of Netherlands 1972-1978

Latest version published by Dutch National Database of Flora and Fauna (NDFF) on Mar 26, 2018 Dutch National Database of Flora and Fauna (NDFF)

Around 1973, a number of botanical inventory surveys were carried out to lay the foundation for a large-scale ecotope mapping project as part of a district-wide environmental research project within the Integral Structure Plan of the North. Botanical research was only carried out in high-value ecological and endangered areas. This was described by Reijnen and De Boer (1978, page 11). The field research methods were described by Smittenberg et al. (1977).
