Schafstädt site

The site is a 4x4 km square within an agricultural dominated landscape (>95% arable land) about 20 km Southwest of the city of Halle. The main focus is on biodiversity of vascular plants (surveyed each second to third year), arthropods (mainly pollinators, surveyed yearly by combined flight traps) and birds (surveyed each third year) in relation to land use and climate change. The survey of vegetation, land use, birds and arthropods started in 2003 and are regularily continued since 2009.
