Bioblitz in Leopold Park (Brussels) - May 25 2019 - REPORT0 reviews
Here is the report (statistics and resources) of the BioBlitz that was held in Leopold park, Brussels, in 2019. “BioBlitz Leopold Park” is a follow-up of how biodiversity has changed –and hopefully increased– in a park located in the heart of Brussels, since the revegetation of the pond and set up of a flowery meadow in 2015. The first edition of the BioBlitz was organized in 2018, and the second edition was held on May 25 2019. After a short introduction on sampling techniques and insect ecology, citizens were invited to collect insects at the bank of the pond, in the meadow, and in other locations of the park. This participatory event aimed at raising citizens awareness about biodiversity in the city. The material to be used for the observation and identification of the specimens were provided by the Museum staff.
