TransEcoNet: The landscape functionality assessment

Mar 29, 2011
Actions within the TransEcoNet project create basic information for the conservation and development of ecological networks. One part of project activities is focusing on the assessment of biodiversity and ecosystem services in ecological networks.

In the last months the main objective was to assess and visualize actual landscape functionality in selected transboundary areas in Central Europe based on parameters such as landscape structure, fragmentation, connectivity and biodiversity. This landscape functionality assessment has generated a series of maps which will provide valuable information for the action plan for sustainable management of ecological networks to be elaborated in 2011.
