Monitoring of insects

Insect monitoring

The insect monitoring can be divided into two parts.

The first part deals with those components of insect monitoring that have already been developed or are being developed by institutions outside the BMEL division. Here, the task is to create suitable interfaces with the agricultural landscape-related monitoring so that the results can be used for joint analyses. This includes, for example, specifying the sampling grid and the survey methods, but also developing proposals for supplementary data collection and evaluation.

The second part deals with components of insect monitoring, for which a national database is lacking, but which, from the point of view of agricultural policy, should definitely become part of a national monitoring system in order to create a suitable database for the continuous improvement of agri-environmental policy. This database can then also be used to base public discussions on facts.
