    Presentation Transcript
    1. Informing biodiversity monitoring & reporting designs • A coordinated system for biodiversity monitoring • Trustworthy biodiversity measures • Species occupancy: uses and abuses • Solutions for standardising and mobilising data

    2. A coordinated system for biodiversity monitoring Peter Bellingham

    3. Multiple reporting obligations International • Convention on Biological Diversity National • NZ Biodiversity Strategy….. ‘maintain and restore a full range of remaining natural habitats and ecosystems to a healthy functioning state’ Internal • Assessing DOC’s performance with respect to achieving its stated outcomes

    4. Effective management requires Information on • Where biodiversity outcomes are being achieved • How management interventions can be used to improve outcomes

    5. Biodiversity monitoring in 2000 • Networks of biodiversity information with time-series data • Biased assessments • No coordination among sites • Mostly in managed sites • Can’t report losses & gains nationally

    6. A national monitoring system For public conservation lands: • National and regional reporting of status and trend in ecological integrity • Evaluating the effectiveness of conservation management and policy • Informing prioritisation for resource allocation • An early-warning system

    7. Evaluating ecological integrity • Indigenous dominance ‘Are the ecological processes natural?’ • Species occupancy ‘Are the species present what you would expect naturally?’ • Ecosystem representation ‘Are the full range of ecosystems protected somewhere?’

    8. Biodiversity measures Vegetation • Distribution and abundance of exotic weeds considered a threat • Size-class structure of canopy dominants • Representation of plant functional types Animals • Distribution and abundance of exotic pests considered a threat • Assemblages of widespread animal species – Birds

    9. Sampling framework • 8 x 8 km grid • Standardised field surveys • Vegetation • Mammal pests • Birds • 5-year rotating-panel design • Unique subset of locations sampled each year

    10. Building trustworthy biodiversity measures A proof-of-concept using birds Catriona MacLeod
