PROGRAM / 02
Landscape dynamics and biodiversity / CTFC

This programme studies the landscape created by the relationship between ecosystems and society. Analysis of different drivers on natural ecosystems and the goods and services that they provide is crucial for ensuring the persistence of the ecosystems and the future provision of the associated goods and services.
Our work is based on the ecology of landscapes and biodiversity, an analysis of fires and other disturbances, mosaic landscapes (agroforestry systems or transitions between urban-suburban-rural areas) and the development of innovative forest planning and decision-making tools.

Innovative forest planning on the forest/landscape/region level and the development of decision-making support tools are key for analysing landscape dynamics and biodiversity, as well as for evaluating and selecting the management policies to implement in a given territory.

 

R+D lines and Transfer

  • Diagnosis of natural environment dynamics
  • Risk and impact analysis of global change
  • Model ecosystem services and the ways in which they interact
  • Fluvial dynamics: interactions between water and sediment at different spatial and temporal scales
  • Development of management measures and landscape/regional adaptation
  • Conservation planning
  • Methods and tools for multi-objective forest planning at a landscape/regional level
  • Decision-making support tools in a context of global change
Working areas

/ Study the biology, ecology and conservation of species

/ Planning and management tools for biodiversity conservation

/ Ecosystem management models using multi-scale approaches, optimisation methods and decision-making support systems

/ Landscape ecology

/ Bioindicators used for evaluating ecosystem conservation levels

/ Integration of biodiversity conservation measures, use of natural resources and social perception

/ Restoration of forest and fluvial habitats

/ Use of drones for biodiversity purposes and forest applications

/ Tools for simulating the evolution of forests and their ecosystemic services under different forest management regimes and climate conditions

/ Fire simulation tools, helping to prevent their impact and to develop fire prevention plans
