Monitoring food availability for meadow birds

Project Details

Abstract

The species protection programme (SBP) meadow birds states that the sharp decline of meadow birds in Flanders could possibly be caused by changes in food availability. It is therefore important to gain a better understanding of food availability for meadow birds and to formulate possible solutions to the problem through design and management measures. A methodology was developed in 2023. From 2024, this methodology will be deployed to gain insight into the food availability for meadow birds, both in and on the soil, and in the vegetation in the meadow bird areas.
