Abstract

The results of quality control (QC) and quality evaluation (QE) tests on the influence of field crews on data quality in lichen biomonitoring surveys were investigated. Results showed that 75% quantitative accuracy and 90% quantitative precision can be regarded as satisfactory measurement quality objectives (MQOs) for lichen biodiversity data. 65% proved to be sufficient MQO for accuracy of taxonomic identification in the field.
