Operator effect is known to have a large influence on sampled species composition, and repeatable methods of botanical survey that minimise operator effect are essential for monitoring programmes. Grasslands – Management, Surveying & Monitoring There is an urgent need to monitor the wildlife value of grasslands and assess how they can be managed effectively.

Grasslands are a priority habitat due to their fragility within succession - if left unmanaged they will quickly disappear. There are many methods of surveying grassland depending on what you wish to survey and monitor.
