Name of the biodiversity monitoring initiative
Short and comprehensive name to be used in visualizations. Not required. (i.e. PT - BMS)

Geographical coverage

At what scale is data collected by the monitoring initiative? (e.g. EU, Biogeographic Region)
Select the countries covered by this monitoring initiative
Is the data representative for the whole country? If the answer is yes, stop here. If the answer is NO, and the monitoring sites are concentrated in a particular region, please, select the corresponding NUTS level region
If the biodiversity data/initiative has a subnational coverage or is not representative in whole country for national coverage, select first the corresponding country ("Nuts country" field) and then the NUT levels 1-2-3 covered (multiple choice allowed). If you don´t find the relevant the NUTS region/s in the provided list, please use the field "Geographic coverage" to give further details of the coverage of the biodiversity data/initiative.
Further details of the geographic scope. For example, if data is collected at the Biogeographic region level, indicate here the specific regions (e.g. Mediterranean)
Select from the list: systematic monitoring, opportunistic observations, automatic recording, remote sensing, others
Brief description of the monitoring initiative: how the data is collected (e.g. sampling transects), what is the frequency of data collection, etc. Please, write here any details that might be relevant for the dataflow that builds on this biodiversity data, including relevant URLs and bibliographic references
What is driving the monitoring initiative?
Select from the list
Citizen science data includes data collected by volunteers of different backgrounds for example, most of the data uploaded to EBP comes from non-professional birdwatchers and the EBBA2 (European Atlas of Breeding Birds) trained volunteers over different countries to collect the data following the Atlas methodology. Both are examples of citizen science data. Government data includes monitoring programs run by employees of state/governmental agencies and public institutes such as the Nature Conservation Institute. Professional monitoring will include data collected by consultancies or NGOs for example.
Is the data openly available?
Please, indicate the URL to access or request the data
