The Swedish Wetland Survey
Compiled Excerpts From The National Final Report. ISBN 978-91-620-6618-5.
Sweden has the highest variation in wetland types within the EU. A fifth of the country's land area is covered by wetlands, and after Russia, it has the largest wetland area in Europe.
The Swedish Wetland Survey (VMI) took place between 1981 and 2004. The survey covered all large wetland sites except from the ones in the alpine zone. About 35,000 wetland sites were surveyed with a common methodology. All sites were surveyed by aerial photographs and about 12 % of the sites were alsosurveyed in the field. The survey covers 3.4 million hectares or approximately 8 % of Sweden's land area.
The purpose of this report is to make information about the wetland survey available outside of Sweden.The report is a compilation of excerpts from the national final report. It focuses on VMI-methodology, Swedish wetland types, and the results and the final evaluation of the survey.
