Culturally used landscapes are camp/ex ecosystems. Obviously they change in time and space. But it is not always elear whether natura/ or anthropogenic alteration - or both - ajfect the ecosystems and their inhabitants. And not all human interventions are intended or desirable. Therefore, the possible consequences of any projects should be examined carefully. Particularly in or near preserved regions like national parks or special protected areas it is required by law to check all known aspects of possible affections on the ecosystem. The Spatial Analysis and Modeling Tool SAMT (www.samt-lsa.org) is a spatial simulation. SAMT unites f eatures of a grid based geographical information system GIS and modeling methods to evaluate habitat quality and results of spatial changes. As species-habitat relationships are mare often qualitative than exactly numeric, implemented fuzzytechniques allow a suitable management of ecological data and to calculate exact outputs. The precise results are visualized and analysed and can be used as a bas is for decisions in planning - in competent authorities, for investors and nature conservation specialists alike. ft is essential to support traditional methods with modern solution. Although we do not abandon mapping birds and other fauna or flora rather than we refy on this data basis for modeling specieshabitat relationships. One important issue nowadays is the influence of wind turbines on the habitat quality of sensitive bird species. Hence, this paper presents the use of SAMT with a specific ecological issue within /egal procedures in landscape planning processes. The implemented fuzzy modeling tool reveals its usability as it integrates ornithological knowledge.
