Vulnerability of biodiversity in the agro-ecosystem as influenced by green veining and land-use intensity (GREENVEINS)

Objective

The principle objective of GREENVEINS is to develop procedures for the identification of vulnerability of biodiversity in the agricultural landscape. This will be accomplished through a survey of a range of 20 - 25 agricultural landscape sites across the Temperate Zone of Europe. At these sites, both biodiversity data and landscape data will be collected. Analysis is aimed at describing the relationship between biodiversity (i.e. species, species groups (taxonomic as well as functional) and metapopulations of species differing in spatial scale level) and (changes in) landscape structure and land-use intensity Results will be used to get consensus with stakeholders over interpretation in terms of vulnerability of biodiversity. Project results and conclusions will be used for a demonstration application.
