Processing of research and dispersed information on protected species and input into a unified Protected Species Information System (PSIS/SRIS)

Project leader: Dr. V. Rašomavičius, project reference number EEE-LT03-AM-01-K-01-001, (2014–2016)

The Protected Species Information System (PSIS/SRIS) is aimed at compiling, systematizing and providing data on protected species, their habitats and localities to interested parties and ensuring publicity of the data and information on protected species. The data are used for practical environmental activities: development of protected species management plans, nature ma­nagement plans, documents on the establishment and planning of protected areas, documents on the assessment of the impact of planned economic activities on the environment, documents on forest management, preparation of land survey projects for rural development, etc. The information system data can also be used for working out analyses, strategies, prognoses concerning protected species distribution, abundance, status, etc.
The data for the Protected Species Information System is provided mandatory by the environmental system staff as well as various environmental promoters. However, over 50 years worth of data from a number of main sources are still unavailable, including from scientific collections and archives (field sheets, observation questionnaires, reports, cartographic material), as well as dispersed information to be gained from observers of natural diversity acting in other institutions (universities), public organizations (Entomological, Bat Conservation Societies) or living in the regions.. The project leader will ensure verification of the quality and approval of the provided dispersed data as well as input into the Protected Species Information System.
The aim of the project is to compile and analyse the dispersed scientific data as well as historical information on protected species of animals, plants and fungi, and to systematize and consolidate the data into a unified Protected Species Information System.

Norway Grants: Partnership for Creation and Preservation of Values

The Nature Research Centre has successfully completed the project "Processing of research and dispersed information on protected species and input into a unified Protected Species Information System" (No EEE-LT03-AM-01-K-01-001) within the EEA financial mechanism programme „Biodiversity and ecosystem services“ 2009–2014. The Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Lithuania was the national operator of the programme, and the Central Project Management Agency was the implementing institution.

The purpose of the project from April 2014 was to compile, analyse and provide data on protected species for a unified Protected Species Information System (PSIS) administered by the Ministry of Environment and thus contribute to the preservation of biodiversity. The final result of project activities is over 53 thousand of new records of protected animal, plant and fungus species (of which 1385 were records of strictly protected species). The main sources of such an impressive amount of information were scientific collections (e.g. BILAS, WI, and HSUD herbariums), private collections, databases of research institutions (e.g. CICONIA, BIGIS, etc.), non-governmental organisations and private persons, observation reports, field sheets, individual reports, etc. About thirty researchers of the Nature Research Centre as well as experts from other institutions were involved in the project.  

The closing event of the project took place on 18 April 2016. Algirdas Klimavičius, Head of the Protected Areas Strategy Division of the Department of Protected Areas and Landscape of the Ministry of Environment, presented successful results of the project. The Protected Species Information System is of particular importance in taking national strategic decisions, implementing economic development projects as well as preserving biodiversity. The results of the project significantly contribute to the effective functioning of the Protected Species Information System.
