Pere Tomas Vives, Programme Coordinator at Tour du Valat writes:
Tour du Valat is currently working on the development of the Living Planet Index for Mediterranean wetlands, as part of the Observatory of Mediterranean wetlands. As you may know, the LPI has been developed by WWF and the IoZ and it is based on the evolution and trends of vertebrate species populations and we are currently collecting time series of data for different species populations at different scales (site, region, country).
For more info on the LPI you can visit this address
We are currently trying to identify organisations (government agencies, universities, NGO, protected areas managers, etc.) and experts/scientists from Mediterranean countries who hold time data series on animal populations related to wetlands. We are also searching for publications or reports where this type of data have been published. Ideally the best would be to obtain data at site level, but also regional/national data series will be very useful.
If you or your organisation holds this type of data and wishes to contribute to this study, we would be most grateful if you could contact me and my colleague Thomas Galewski. Also, if you know of any other organisation or expert who holds this data, we would very much appreciate if you could let us know.
We look forward to hearing from you.
With best regards.
