BfN Schriften 398 - Standards for the monitoring of the Central European wolf population in Germany and Poland
The rapid expansion of this population presents a clear challenge for its conservation and monitoring.
This final report is based on the standards for monitoring large carnivores in Germany (KACZENSKY et al. 2009, REINHARDT et al. in prep), which received strong input from European experts on wolf monitoring. National monitoring experts from Poland and Germany gave it its final shape. These experts are asked to give their input in future too, since the standards should be refined and adapted to the new knowledge gathered and experience gained through working with the standards.
