Swedish Butterfly Monitoring Scheme

The Swedish Butterfly Monitoring Scheme is a national monitoring programme coordinated by Lund University for the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. The programme was initiated in 2010, and is a partnership between the Entomological Society of Sweden, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, Lund University, the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and the Swedish County Administrative Boards. The scheme currently covers 350 sites all over Sweden and involves 250 volunteer recorders. The number of butterflies counted during the first three years of the scheme have been 29900 in 2010, 54700 in 2011 and 51400 in 2011. We are currently expanding with a rate of 7-10% per year in terms of sites covered and volunteers joining.
