Sustainable management of the territory and its resources is one of the greatest challenges of our time. At CREAF we supply information which is key for decision-making when planning our surroundings and managing the environment and its natural resources.
Landscape fragmentation and dynamicsThe degradation and fragmentation of habitats are some of the primary causes of biodiversity loss in many ecosystems. Approaching this problem from the landscape scale results especially useful for proposing effective management decisions which are adapted to the territory.
These studies have a direct application in the design of networks of natural spaces and of ecological connectors, in general for the organization of the territory, and in the development of tools for environmental evaluation. Additionally, working at the landscape scale has shown the necessity of integrating all social actors into the decision-making process for the management of our territory.
