TransEcoNet: Comprehensive inventory of ecological networks in Central Europe finished

Dec 15, 2010
The TransEcoNet project strives for a better connection of protected and less or unprotected landscapes across national borders in Central Europe. One focus of the project during its first half of implementation has been the analysis of existing transboundary ecological networks, their status of biodiversity and the detection of gaps in these networks.
The inventory of ecological networks and the identification of potential ecological corridors was the basis for the gap analysis. The methodology used is based on an unspecified species approach, the detection of habitat corridors and transnational and national network plans for protected areas. Identified gaps in ecological networks with a high and very high priority will be further analysed in each project region. Based on these findings strategies and recommendations how to close the detected gaps will be developed.
