At the beginning of the summer semester 2020, a multi-year R&D project to record biodiversity will start at the Environmental Campus of the Trier University of Applied Sciences. The goals of the project, which is led by Prof. Dr. Stefan Stoll and Prof. Dr. Peter Fischer-Stabel, are the development of IT-based recording and evaluation components of biological site data and a comprehensive mapping of the species inventory of selected taxa on the Environmental Campus. The latter is to be implemented in the context of a crowd sourcing activity by both students and staff of the university.
True to the quote of Konrad Lorenz "You only love what you know, and you only protect what you love", project-accompanying excursions and exercises in species knowledge are offered, which allow interested participants to become species experts in the respective taxonomic groups.
The results of the project should help at a later stage to answer questions about the effects of climate change on biodiversity or to develop biotope management plans and maintenance measures at the Environmental Campus in an environmentally sound manner. In addition, the project aims to promote social awareness of biological diversity in accordance with the visions of the National Strategy on Biological Diversity (NBS).
