Dutch Butterfly Monitoring Indexes

Latest version published by Dutch Butterfly Conservation on Aug 28, 2017 Dutch Butterfly Conservation

The Dutch Butterfly Monitoring Scheme (Landelijk Meetnet Vlinders) holds data of standardized weekly butterfly counts at more than two thousand transects in the Netherlands.

We are happy to share our data for research to strengthen butterfly conservation while respecting the input of hundreds of volunteer recorders. Researchers are thus encouraged to contact the dataset owners to collaborate on joint analyses and meta-analyses.
