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.
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.
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 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 demonstrates that co-management options and strong governance such as granting exclusive rights for fishing benefit both the performance of the small-scale fisheries themselves, but also contribute to their social and environmental sustainability.
