In 2015 and 2015 we surveyed the populations of several butterfly species of annex II and/or IV of the FFH directive (Scarce and Dusky Large Blue, Cluded Apollo, Large Copper and Jersey Tiger).
We monitor the Otter population in Styria in co-operation with the University of Graz (Prof. Steven Weiss) by a spraint survey under 650 bridges (same as studied by Andreas Kranz in 2011) and by estimating otter densities with molecular methods within selected study areas.
The main goal of the project is a good estimation of the distribution and population size of the otter in Styria.
