h - Information and knowledge

Information and knowledge available


A 1996 Biological Inventory sets out the existing knowledge of the Quill / Boven National Park and related biodiversity. This document sets out the habitat distribution, and existing inventories of species. The state of knowledge based on this document is low.

A 2004 series of reptile and amphibian research studies completed the inventory for reptiles and amphibians on St Eustatius. This state of knowledge is satisfactory.

Additional inventories are underway including:

  • Flora inventory, butterfly inventory, insect inventory

No socio-economic study has been carried out due to very limited subsistence use of the National Park only.
