This Volume 1 of Biodiversity in southern Africa: Patterns at local scale - The BIOTA Observatories, serves the needs of local users and is concerned primarily with the findings associated with each of the 37 BIOTA Biodiversity Observatories (standardised, biodiversity long-term monitoring plots, see Part II) located along the BIOTA Southern Africa transect.

It has been designed specifically for all land owners, and landusers as well as the managers of conservation areas and members of municipalities and local communities. Together with a relatively brief introductory section (i.e. Part I), the volume consists of a more comprehensive Part II, entitled "The BIOTA Observatories". This Part consists of detailed information on each of the standardised Biodiversity Observatories, grouped into six Chapters according to the six biomes, to which they belong. It begins with a detailed description of the methods and spatial sampling design used to gather and analyse the data. The bulk of Part II, however, provides information on the observed local patterns in Observatory-related climate, soil fertility, plants, animals, and microorganism as well as on their observed trends and changes over time.
