Abstract A scientifically sound PVA must necessarily be based on a detailed knowledge of habitat requirements as well as demographic and genetic properties of the species under study (Boyce 1992, Loeschcke et al. 1994, McCauley 1995, Wissel et al. 1995, Poethke et al. this volume: 81–92). But while habitat requirements are comparatively well studied for quite a number of species, we have rather poor information on demographic properties like density dependant mortality and natality processes, migration behaviour, and population fluctuation resulting from environmental influences. Even worse is our knowledge about the influence of genetical properties of populations on their long term survival (Allendorf & Leary 1986, Loeschcke et al. 1994).
