Description

“Update of the giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) distribution in Wallonia” is a presence/absence dataset focusing on giant hogweed in the Senne basin, ;collected from the field in June 2021 all over Wallonia, Southern Belgium. Historical sites where the species was recorded previously were re-visited by the Contrats de Rivière de Wallonie to assess the outcome of management actions conducted in the past. The dataset includes absence records and should be considered with caution. Data compilation, cleaning and validation were performed by the Département de l’Étude du Milieu Naturel et Agricole (SPW – DGARNE - DEMNA).

Project Data

The spread of invasive alien species (IAS) is not hampered by administrative borders. Aquatic IAS, in particular, spread rapidly through the hydrographic network. To effectively control such species requires coordinated management at higher spatial scales. LIFE RIPARIAS (Reaching Integrated and Prompt Action in Response to Invasive Alien Species) aims to achieve such coordination across regional borders in Belgium, supported by open data and open infrastructure for early warning and management reporting. LIFE RIPARIAS aims at improving decision making on IAS management, early warning systems and management reporting tools. To this end, it develops an evidence-based workflow, translating national management objectives into concrete actions in an efficient manner. Ultimately the project aims at increasing the conservation status of aquatic and riparian habitats. More information on LIFE RIPARIAS is available at the project homepage: https://www.riparias.be/. You can also follow LIFE RIPARIAS on Twitter (@LIFEriparias) and Facebook (LIFE Riparias). We have released this dataset to the public domain under a Creative Commons Zero waiver. We would appreciate it if you follow the GBIF citation guidelines (https://www.gbif.org/citation-guidelines) when using the data.

Title Reaching Integrated and Prompt Action in Response to Invasive Alien Species (LIFE RIPARIAS)
Identifier LIFE RIPARIAS
Funding LIFE RIPARIAS is co-funded by the three Belgian regions and the European Union in the framework of the LIFE Programme (LIFE19 NAT/BE/000953). It is running from 2021 to 2026.
Study Area Description Dijle, Mark and Zenne river basin of the Scheldt district, Belgium.
Design Description LIFE RIPARIAS focuses on aquatic and riparian plants as well as crayfish species located in the Dijle, Mark and Zenne river basin of the Scheldt district in Belgium. Cumulative observation data collected in 2000-2015, completed by data gathered from field surveillance in 2021-2022, will provide the baseline to design management objectives and define quantitative targets.

Sampling Methods

historical sites where the giant hogweed was previously recorded (see dataset “DEMNA-DNE : Exotic plant occurrences in Wallonia”) were re-visited to assess the outcome of management actions conducted since plant detection. Sites were visited by the Contrats de Rivière de Wallonie in June 2021, when giant hogweed is easy to detect irrespective of plant age (including seedlings). Plant presence/absence was assessed on visual information collected in this way. Data were afterwards compiled by Adrien Latli, SPW-DGARNE-DEMNA.

Study Extent Wallonia, Belgium - June 2021

Method step description:

  1. Visit by operators of target localities (local river contracts)
  2. gathering of the information (DEMNA)
