Monitoring vegetations with a folding meter?

Based on the need to monitor vegetation more quantitatively, INBO developed a new method based on distance measurements. For species that grow close to a sufficient number of point locations scattered over the site, the horizontal distance between the point locations and the nearest part of the plants growing in their vicinity (e. g. up to 1 m) will be measured. The new method provides more information than existing monitoring techniques and may also be used to verify, for example, remote-sensing data. It also allows you to pick up changes in abundance faster.
