The long-term metapopulation study of the Glanville fritillary butterfly (Melitaea cinxia) that has been conducted since 1991 in a large network of 4,000 habitat patches (dry meadows) within a study area of 50 by 70 km in the Åland Islands in Finland. Here, we explain how the landscape structure has been described, including definition, delimitation and mapping of the habitat patches; methods of field survey, including the logistics, cost and reliability of the survey; and data management using the EarthCape biodiversity platform.
