Research axes of the BiodivSamp group within ALTER-Net

Abstract : On its first Call for proposals, ALTER-Net Network of excellence funded the development phase of a project ("BiodivSamp") about the optimisation of sampling strategies for biodiversity monitoring, that was coordinated by the Cemagref. Such a phase is devoted to create a working group and identify common research questions on the selected research topic. Using the material gathered through an electronic conference that was organised by the Cemagref on the ALTER-Net Internet WebBoard (October 2005), this document assesses the fields, skills and common research interest within the BiodivSamp group, with a view to building up a methodological research project within ALTER-Net. It contains the list of the studied taxa, the used sampling methods and the investigated biogeographical regions within the working group. Two main research topics were identified : (1) simplifying sampling designs in existing monitoring networks, (2) assessing biases caused by sampling method attributes (observer, time-period, environmental conditions, etc). Examples of research questions are formulated for the whole or particular taxa. Needs in data sets and statistical methods are identified.
