      Biosphere Reserve Information



  Brief description   Monitoring of chemical quality of rain-water
Air pollution, soils, climate
Breeding birds monitoring
Biotope mapping, species inventoring, ecological correlation
Effects of fishing, agriculture, forestry on ecosystem
Mapping of the different zones of the biosphere reserve
In situ conservation of old cereal species, conservation of wild plants like Arnoseris minima, Scleranthus annuus and Anthoxanthum aristatum
Indicators of sustainability relevant to economic activities (test phase): biotic: disturbance, landscape-cutting, death of species
abiotic: water pollution, soil erosion, influence of air pollution etc.
  Specific variables...    
  Abiotic   Acidic deposition/Acid rain, climate, erosion, hydrology, monitoring/methodologies, pollution, pollutants, soil.
  Biodiversity   Birds, breeding/reproduction, conservation, ecology, ecosystem assessment, genetic resources, methodologies, perturbations/resilience/vulnerability, plants, species inventorying/inventory.
  Socio-economic   Agriculture/Production systems, fishery/fisheries, forestry, indicators of sustainability.
  Integrated monitoring   Impact and risk studies/Environmental impact, landscape inventorying/monitoring, mapping, planning and zoning measures/zonation.
