Applying the Hydrogeomorphic Approach to Assessing the Coastal Habitat
There were variety of biotypes along the coast in Taiwan, but it has been spoiled seriously by human exploitation in the last two to three decades. Recently, as the maintenance of biodiversity has been paid a lot attention globally and so as the planning and design of coastal engineering, protecting or establishing habitats has been important. Therefore, it is necessary to have a definite index to distinguish good habitats from bad. That is, the so-called ecosystem evaluation model should be established. This research intends to modify the HGM model content so that a proper habitats evaluation model for Taiwan's coastal eco-environment with the reference, while initial the wetland habitats evaluation model utilized in America. It is estimated to be a two-year research. The first year is mainly to establish the model, the second year is to review and verify the cases. In the first year, the project titles “Applying the Hydrogeomorphic Approach to assess the coastal habitat”. Those hydrological and ecological landscape habitat factors were modification mainly based on questionnaire data collection and experts, the establishment of the HGM habitat evaluation model for Taiwan's coastal. However, the reliability of the application model must be verified by ecology experts. Therefore, this year was expected to select variety locations at domestic. The use of models and expert assessment of evaluation results directly matched against the pattern repeated in the amendments and adjustments for hydrologic and geomorphic factors in weight as possible, with the expert evaluation model to evaluate a more consistent result, repeatability. After verification of more times the number of experts, the future pattern of the greater reliability and versatility. In addition, the project must be assessed at the same time the verification operator to determine the mode of operation of the convenience and feasibility.
