Insektenwiesen Hessen

Lebensräume für Hessens Insekten schaffen


Der Verlust geeigneter Lebensräume ist einer der Hauptgründe für den aktuell zu beobachtenden Insektenrückgang. Artenreiche Wiesen gehören zu den Lebensräumen, die besonders davon betroffen sind. Sie sind in den vergangenen Jahrzehnten immer seltener und artenärmer geworden. Mit der richtigen Pflege können jedoch Grünflächen in wertvolle Wiesen und damit (Ersatz- ) Lebensräume für Insekten umgestaltet werden und das selbst in der Stadt.

Mit wenig Aufwand viel bewirken

Eine entsprechende Pflege ist dabei einfach umzusetzen und eignet sich sowohl für private Gärten als auch öffentliche Flächen. Indem Grünflächen weniger regelmäßig gemäht werden, etwa nur noch ein- bis zweimal pro Jahr statt jeder zweiten Woche, können störungsempfindliche Kräuter zur Blüte kommen, die dringend benötigte Nahrungsquellen für Insekten wie Bienen und Schmetterlinge sind. Durch eine zeitlich versetzte Teilmahd bleiben Bereiche mit Nahrungspflanzen und Rückzugsorte für Insekten über das ganze Jahr bestehen, und der Umstieg von maschineller, hin zu manueller Mahd, reduziert zudem die Verletzungsgefahr der Insekten während des Mähens.

insektenwiesen
Der Schwarzkolbige Braundickkopf profitiert durch eine Teilmahd, bei der sich die Mahd nur auf Teilbereiche beschränkt. Er legt seine Eier am Grund zwischen Halm und Blattspreiten ab, und die Larven schlüpfen und verpuppen sich im nächsten Frühjahr.

Das Projekt „Insektenwiesen Hessen“

In Kooperation mit Ämtern und Verbänden und unter Mitwirkung der Bürger*innen sollen Grünflächen und Gärten insektenfreundlicher gestaltet werden. Hierbei können sich diejenigen einbringen, die sich aktiv für die Förderung von Insekten engagieren möchten. Das kann sowohl über die Umgestaltung des eigenen Gartens oder Firmengeländessein oder durch die Beteiligung bei größeren Umgestaltungsaktionen auf öffentlichen Flächen. Innerhalb des Projektes unterstützen wir Sie bei der Umsetzung und der Erfolgskontrolle.

Zu den zahlreichen Besuchern gehören etwa die Kleine Schwebfliege, die Scheinbienen-Keilfleckschwebfliege und die Rainfarn-Seidenbiene.

Bald ist es soweit

Die Insektenwiesen sollen zukünftig auf einer eigenen Projektseite in einer Karte hinterlegt und sichtbar gemacht sowie die Erfahrungen und Entwicklung der Fläche dort jeweils in einem eigenen Blog geteilt werden. Darüber sollen auch die Vernetzung und der Austausch der Teilnehmenden ermöglicht und gefördert werden. Die beobachteten Insekten können ab dem Sommer 2021 über ein Online-Portal und eine App gemeldet werden. Das so gestaltete Monitoring erlaubt es, die Erfolge der Pflegemaßnahmen zu dokumentieren und mehr über die Verbreitung von Insekten in Hessen zu erfahren.

Bis zur Fertigstellung der digitalen Strukturen, wird per Newsletter über die Entwicklungen und den Stand des Projekts informiert. Darüber hinaus werden dort Tipps zur Förderung von Insekten vorgestellt und Veranstaltungen des Projekts angekündigt.

Haben Sie konkrete Fragen oder möchten per Newsletter über die Entwicklungen im Projekt auf dem Laufenden gehalten werden, schreiben Sie uns gerne eine E-Mail!

Research interests

I am a herpetologist and field biologist. My main research interests include biodiversity, bioacoustics, evolutionary biology and human wildlife-conflicts. I like to combine different methods to disentangle hidden diversity, and to develop new approaches for monitoring wildlife through time. Frequently asked question: How can we make our Big Field Data smart?

Integrative taxonomy of Neotropical Herpetofauna

By combining different disciplines and methods, such as morphology, bioacoustics and molecular data I search for candidate species and study trait evolution. Of particular interest are the frogs of Bolivia, and how their advertisement calls can be used as a tool for species delimitation. Current taxonomic revisions: Leptodactylus, Dendropsophus, Proceratophrys. 

New species

Dendropsophus arndti (Caminer, Míla, Jansen, Fouquet, Venegas, Chávez, Chek & Ron 2017)

Dendropsophus vreami (Caminer, Míla, Jansen, Fouquet, Venegas, Chávez, Chek & Ron 2017)

Hydrolaetare caparu (Jansen, Gonzales &. Köhler 2009)

Scinax villasboasi (Brusquetti, Jansen, Barrio-Amorós, Segalla & Haddad 2014)

Scinax madeirae (removed from synonymy of Scinax fuscomarginatus, Brusquetti, Jansen, Barrio-Amorós, Segalla & Haddad 2014)

Pseudopaludicola ibisoroca (Pansonato, Veiga-Menoncello, Mudrek, Jansen, Reco-Pimentel, Martins & Strüssmann 2017) 

Pseudopaludicola motorzinho (Pansonato, Veiga-Menoncello, Mudrek, Jansen, Reco-Pimentel, Martins & Strüssmann 2017) 

Phalotris sansebastiani (Jansen & Köhler 2008)

Xenopholis werdingorum (Jansen, Gonzales & Köhler 2009)

Inventory and monitoring biodiversity 

At the research station Chiquitos in Bolivia we develop new methods for biodiversity inventories, such as an eDNA-based inventory of frogs, and we conduct monitorings with passive audiorecorders (since 2010) and camera traps (since 2017). The next step will be to develop analyzing methods to convert these big data to smart data in order to  to detect changes in local faunal comunities and to develop action plans for conservation. 

Using camera traps we want to study the human-jaguar conflict on cattle ranches in Bolivia. How abundant is the jaguar and its natural prey at our site? When and why does the jaguar feed on cattle instead of its natural prey? Can we develop anti-predation strategies to manage the conflict at our site?

Recent developments in passive acoustic monitoring and acoustic pattern recognition now enable us to comprehensively record and analyze acoustic events over longer periods of time. In this project I study the calling effort and trait variationof white-lipped frogs (Leptodactylus) during sustained calling over several nights. What is the absolute calling effort, and how do frogs manage their energetic limitations?
