Invasive species - Fallopia japonica on river dikes along the river Zeeschelde, Rupel and Durme

Latest version published by Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) on Jul 6, 2018 Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO)

This dataset contains occurrence data on Fallopia japonica on river dikes along the Zeeschelde and its tributaries the Rupel and Durme (Belgium). The occurrence data is extracted from a more exhaustive (GIS layer) dataset, namely the vegetation map of the river dikes.

Sampling Methods

vegatation mapping (points, lines)

Study Extent A vegetation map is made for dikes of the river Zeeschelde, Durme and Rupel. Five transversal zones are distinguished on the dikes: the base, landside, top on landside, top on riverside and riverside. These are mapped as 5 parallel lines with 10 m as the smallest unit. Shorter units of specific importance are mapped as a point. Each mapped unit has homogeneous vegetation and is designated to a certain vegetation type. Besides grassland vegetation types also reed, tall herb vegetation, trees/shrub and Japanese Knotweed (Fallopia japonica) vegetation were distinguished. The mapped units (lines, points) of Japanese Knotweed were extracted of the vegetation map (GIS layer). This dataset only contains the Japanese knotweed occurrences. Based on the GIS layer point occurrences were generated. The data extracted from the transects and point occurrences have a coordinate uncertainty of 10 m. This dataset only contains the Japanese knotweed occurrences.

Method step description:

  1. Layer data was imported in ArcGis, Point data for Fallopia was extracted
