In addition to every year’s standard program the project has an extra budget to pursue special questions. Special projects can be in-depth studies within the standard plot, e.g. for additional organism groups or for a specific research question. On the other hand, this can also include projects completely independent of the standard program. However, it is important that the main objective, i.e. the study of our biodiversity inventory is reflected within the project.
Main aims or special projects are therefore to record biodiversity, to improve our understanding of the factors influencing biodiversity and finally, to raise awareness for all kinds of biodiversity issues.
