Elaboration of the assessment method of the conservation status of the habitat of community interest "Coastal dunes with Juniperus spp." (2250)

Abstract : Coastal dunes with Juniperus spp from the "Petite Camargue” Natura 2000 site are priority habitats of Community interest within the meaning of the Habitats Directive and therefore require the establishment of regular monitoring and assessment of their conservation status. As part of the implementation of DOCOB, the Syndicat Mixte de la Camargue gardoise decided thus to implement an assessment method of the conservation status of this habitat. To do this a list of criteria and indicators were developed based on the three parameters proposed by the Directive : area covered, structure and function, and future prospects. Indicators were collected on 30 stations randomly drawn. They allowed to assess the conservation status of each station using an associated scoring method and based on the worst parameter. Extrapolation of these results allowed to determine that the conservation status of coastal dunes with Juniperus spp is unfavorable inadequate at the scale of the site, contrary to the national assessment which evaluated it in unfavorable bad state.
