Metods for the survey and evaluation of spring habitats

Two expert reports are available in order to survey these habitats in a systematic and standardized way:

  • One of the reports presents two complementary methods (structure and fauna) for the eco-faunistic assessment of springs as a natural environment.
  • The second report proposes a systematic procedure for the survey of Swiss spring habitats. It also allows identifying their importance for nature conservation.

The first report was published in 2016 and the second in 2019. Detailed information can be found on the MSP website.
