Restoration and Construction of Wetland bird habitats : Locating wetlands objects that are suitable for construction and restoration in the agricultural landscape (English)
Abstract [en]

There is a shortage of wetlands in the farming landscape and as a direct consequence farmland birds are decreasing in number. The need of restoring and constructing wetlands is therefore great. The purpose of this study was to locate potential objects in the farming landscape that is suitable for creating and restore wetland bird habitats within Västernorrland and Västerbotten County. A method was developed that stepwise pinpoint potential object in the agricultural landscape where seven selection parameters that define a suitable objects criterion where used. To evaluate the located objects a small number was observed in the field and furthermore a simulation of surface water was conducted to evaluate the landscape criteria’s and to calculate the land use. 98 objects were located, 59 restoration and 39 construction objects. The water surface simulation was conducted on four objects where one of the objects did not show favorable condition, this expresses the importance testing the objects early on. A large number of objects was located but the study indicates that there is possibly far more that object that wasn’t located that has good potential. The method has potential to develop higher accuracy and a ranking system. For the future this study suggests a 6 step work process to fully execute a wetland project, where this method constitutes the first step.
