This quantity features a choice of 14 articles facing assorted points of biomonitoring and their relation to questions of world switch. the 1st half matters common elements of biomonitoring. the second one half provides examples of utilized biomonitoring in Germany and Switzerland (changes in species composition, phenologies, plants recovery, adjustments in soil stipulations, and heavy steel concentrations). The 3rd half bargains with climate-related tracking reviews of arctic-alpine and temperate areas of the Northern Hemisphere (mountain peaks and timberline ecotones of the Alps, unfold of unique evergreen broad-leaved crops, phytomass and carbon stability in Svalbard).

This is the prerequisite for nature conservation evaluation. According to Wiegleb (1997), 'ecological assessment' can sometimes result in value judgements being derived from untransformed facts, so that a 'status quo' can be turned into a 'target' (naturalistic fallacy). , species diversity, which as "factual-ecological realities ( ... ) must first be transformed into values" (Wiegleb 1997). A logical evaluation should be guaranteed by a formal, and - with respect to content structured procedure, which theoretically "should be so operationalized that it can be programmed in the form of an expert system" (WieglebI997).
