Title Dragonfly fauna of the "Bornhorster Huntewiesen", evaluation and conception of management recommendations
Description

The "Bornhorster Huntewiesen" nature reserve is part of the EU bird sanctuary "Hunteniederung". The avifauna in this area has therefore been well studied, but little is known about the occurrence of many other taxa. As part of the planned thesis, the dragonfly fauna in this area is to be recorded and evaluated. In addition, management recommendations are to be developed that can maintain or increase dragonfly diversity and at the same time are in line with the defined conservation objectives of the area.
