Research Areas:

general biology

The Swiss National Park and surrounding areas harbours about 40 plant species of national priority and glacial relicts. Information about sites and populations are patchy and non-systematic. Over the next years, we intensify surveys, monitoring and research into these species. We want to survey known populations of all target species with no recent information, detail the population sizes and extents of particular priority species using the PopCount method, find new populations of certain target species by prospective modelling, and improve our knowledge on the habitat requirements by assessing fine-scale habitat characteristics in relation to plant vitality parameters. In the future, we would like to use this improved knowledge on habitat characteristics to refine the prospective modelling at the population level and to project potential future threats.
