Large scale vs mosaic management

  1. 1. At the large scale end of the spectrum: Meijendel- Berkheide Large scale vs. Mosaic management in dune grasslands 8-10-2015 Peter Spierenburg Dunea
  2. 2. 2 drinking water for 1.3 mln people 2400 ha of Natura 2000 dune areas 1 mln visitors per year Dunea - drinking water and dune management
  3. 3. 3 1200 ha of grey dunes in Meijendel-Berkheide calcareous decalcified
  4. 4. 4 Large scale dune rejuvenation projects implemented since 2000 500m “those men are creating a pristine landscape”
  5. 5. 5 Large scale dune restoration projects implemented since 2000 500m 2001 Berkheide & Meijendel (140 ha) Objectives restoration measures rehabilitation of former production areas dune slacks in a dynamic landscape white dunes long-term development of grey dunes (>40 years) Follow-up management grazing
  6. 6. 20052003 6 15 years later: fixation of white dunes and start of grey dune development 20082013 500m
  7. 7. 7 2012 Meijendel (70 ha over 4 sites) Objectives restoration measures quality improvement existing grey dunes long-term development of grey dunes (>40 years) Follow-up management mechanical removal of regrowth grazing Shift towards smaller scale 500m
  8. 8. First indications that grassland-sand mosaic will develop from pioneer situation – if we are patient! First indications of positive effect on existing grassland Large scale is appropriate on disturbed sites Towards smaller scale to improve quality of existing grey dune grasslands 8 Lessons learned
