Abstract
In the outskirts of Malmö, Sweden a small population of sand lizard Lacerta agilis resides in a disused shooting range close to the recreation area known as Husie mosse. This species is listed in the national swedish red list as vulnerable and is declining throughout most of northwestern Europe. It is therefore included in The Habitats Directive, a European Union directive which aims to protect threatened species and habitats. During 2014 and 2016 the habitat in Husie has been subject to a number of conservational measures in order to improve the population’s long-term survival chances. The aim of this study is to examine in which parts of the habitat sand lizards occur and thus gaining more knowledge about which parts of the habitat are... (More)
In the outskirts of Malmö, Sweden a small population of sand lizard Lacerta agilis resides in a disused shooting range close to the recreation area known as Husie mosse. This species is listed in the national swedish red list as vulnerable and is declining throughout most of northwestern Europe. It is therefore included in The Habitats Directive, a European Union directive which aims to protect threatened species and habitats. During 2014 and 2016 the habitat in Husie has been subject to a number of conservational measures in order to improve the population’s long-term survival chances. The aim of this study is to examine in which parts of the habitat sand lizards occur and thus gaining more knowledge about which parts of the habitat are the most important from a nature conservation perspective and to create a basis for future surveys. The habitat was divided into 7 areas with varying characteristics and 11 surveys was conducted during spring and early summer of 2016. Throughout the surveys 31 sightings where made, but only in 2 of the 7 areas. The results indicate a strong dominance for particularly one of the areas in the habitat, but future surveys might show a wider distribution throughout the habitat as a result of the conservation measures that was carried out during the spring of 2016. Furthermore, suitable measures for conserving sand lizard populations in habitats adjacent to urban areas are discussed and evaluated. (Less)
Popular Abstract (Swedish)
I utkanten av Malmö ligger en övergiven militär skjutbana i anslutning till friluftsområdet Husie mosse. Vid en första anblick ser området inte mycket ut för världen med sin sparsamma växtlighet, diverse sopor och inte sällan en eller ett par utbrända mopedkadaver. För den som beger sig till den solbelysta sydsluttningen finns det dock mycket att upptäcka: fjärilar, bivargar och inte minst sandödlor i sina smaragdgröna parningsdräkter.
