This brief is based on findings of the PEATBOG project, illustrates a “win-win” between biodiversity-conservation and climate-change mitigation.
This brief is derived from the LinkTree project, which examined the genetic variation within forest tree populations in five European countries, and assessed how this variability and its management could help forests adapt to environmental changes.
Conservation of small mammals and associated ecosystems: the importance of European policies and actions
This brief is based on the Ecocycles research results, treats of the importance of European policies (for example, the Common Agricultural Policy, the EU Strategy on Climate Adaptation) and actions in the context of the conservation of small mammals and other species which depend on them.
This brief presents the key results from the BeFoFu project that investigated both ecological challenges related to the management of protected forests and governance challenges related to the implementation of Natura 2000.
Conservation of threatened insects in Europe: managing habitats for land use and climate change adaptation
This brief builds on the conclusions from the CLIMIT project focusing on the conservation of threatened and vulnerable insects in the context of changing land use and climate.
This brief highlights the increase and the threat posed by these diseases to Europe’s biodiversity, as demonstrated in the RACE project.
The Common Agricultural Policy can strengthen biodiversity and ecosystem services by diversifying agricultural landscapes
This brief is based on the combined results of the FARMLAND, APPEAL, CONNECT, EC21C and ECODEAL projects. It presents key recommendations on how the CAP can significantly contribute to more diversified agricultural landscapes in support of biodiversity and ecosystem services.
This brief presents information on how soil biodiversity supports a wide range of ecosystem services, and influences crop properties beyond productivity, but that its benefits are often not well-known or underestimated.
This brief presents how the results from the TipTree, TIPPINGPOND and EC21C projects allow characterization of tipping points for two types of European ecosystems, forests and ponds.
This brief presents how the CONNECT, REGARDS, TALE and VITALprojects use optimization tools and participative approaches to quantify synergies and trade-offs between ecosystem services and identify policy options for their sustainable management.
