BioBasis Nuuk - Lakes - Vegetation in lakes

Coverage of submerged vegetation in the two monitoring lakes in Kobbefjord. Approx. 150 points are monitored in each lake and the coverage of Water starwort and moss is determined on a scale from 0-5. For further details, please refer to the newest BioBasis manual available at the website. Lakes:Lakes BioBasis Nuuk:The BioBasis programme monitors the dynamics of organisms and biological processes in the terrestrial and limnic ecosystems at Zackenberg and Nuuk. The BioBasis programme plays a central role in the development and implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme (CBMP) http://www.caff.is/monitoring across the Arctic.
