Landscape development, biodiversity and co-operative livestock systems in europe

Objective

European biodiversity significantly depends on livestock systems. 15 to 28% of endangered species are living mainly in grazed steppe-, tundra-, heath, dry grassland and marsh habitats. In most countries grazing is/was organised in permanent or seasonal co-operations (land-owner/land-user agents). A process of dissolving of co-operation forms affects marginal regions, remote from market places or disadvantaged according to productivity. The commitment of biodiversity conservation of the EU-member states embraces to a large extent thecae of landscape and regional development (e.g. AGENDA 2000, NATURA 2000).Effects of market policies, eastern enlargement of the EU, CAP-reform etc. are often mismatched with conservation goals. The main objective of the proposed research project is the improvement of the ecological and economic effectiveness of co-operative livestock systems which contribute to biodiversity conservation.
