A proposal for a scalable and semantically interoperable family of indices of taxa richness

  
In Database and classification system of different types of Public Goods and Ecosystem Services in relation to farming/forestry systems - PEGASUS Deliverable 2.2 (2016), pp. 79-86

Abstract

[Excerpt] [\n] [...] In this study, we introduce a novel estimate of richness of forest tree genera, based on a harmonised dimensionless family of indices at the continental scale. Each index ranges from 0 (null richness) up to 1 (maximum potential richness) and estimates the richness of tree genera under the assumption of a uniform sampling effort, explicitlydeclared. [\n] Given a category of relevant taxa (here represented by the forest tree taxa for which harmonised pan-European information is available), the family of indicesis designed to cover with variable ...

 

Database and classification system of different types of Public Goods and Ecosystem Services in relation to farming/forestry systems - PEGASUS Deliverable 2.2

  
(2016)

Abstract

[Excerpt: Executive summary] The deliverable represents a step further towards the integrated analysis of agriculture and forestry management and ESS/PG delivery. It contains a schematic review of available information (indicators, proxies) to map ESS/PG that characterise the provision of Environmentally and Socially Beneficial Outcomes as identified in the Pegasus project. Only those ESS/PG that can be mapped through geo-spatial layers are listed. Each ESS/PG is described in detail and critically analysed, in particular with reference to its capacity to capture information ...

 

Synergies and trade-offs between ecosystem service supply, biodiversity, and habitat conservation status in Europe

  
Biological Conservation, Vol. 155 (October 2012), pp. 1-12, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2012.06.016

Abstract

[Abstract] In the European Union (EU) efforts to conserve biodiversity have been consistently directed towards the protection of habitats and species through the designation of protected areas under the Habitats Directive (92/43/ECC). These biodiversity conservation efforts also have the potential to maintain or improve the supply of ecosystem services; however, this potential has been poorly explored across Europe. This paper reports on a spatial assessment of the relationships between biodiversity, ecosystem services, and conservation status of protected habitats at European scale. We ...

 

An indicator framework for assessing ecosystem services in support of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020

  
Ecosystem Services, Vol. 17 (February 2016), pp. 14-23, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecoser.2015.10.023

Abstract

[Highlights] [::] EU Member states have to map and assess ecosystems and their services (MAES). [::] We present the MAES conceptual model which links biodiversity to human wellbeing. [::] Typologies of ecosystems and their services ensure comparability across countries. [::] We present a list of indicators that can be used for national MAES assessments. [::] We critically discuss the data gaps and challenges of the MAES typologies. [Abstract] In the EU, the mapping and assessment of ecosystems and their services, abbreviated to MAES, is seen as a key ...

Mapping and assessment of ecosystems and their services indicators for ecosystem assessments under action 5 of the EU biodiversity strategy to 2020: 2nd report - final, February 2014

  

Abstract

The second MAES report presents indicators that can be used at European and Member State's level to map and assess biodiversity, ecosystem condition and ecosystem services according to the Common International Classification of Ecosystem Services (CICES v4.3). This work is based on a review of data and indicators available at national and European level and is applying the MAES analytical framework adopted in 2013. ...

 

Mapping and Assessment of Ecosystems and their Services - An analytical framework for ecosystem assessments under action 5 of the EU biodiversity strategy to 2020

  

Abstract

Action 5 of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 calls Member States to map and assess the state of ecosystems and their services in their national territory with the assistance of the European Commission. The objective of this discussion paper is to support the development of a coherent analytical framework to be applied by the EU and its Member States in order to ensure consistent approaches are used. In line with the Millennium Ecosystem assessment, the objective of the EU assessment ...

Pan-European distribution modelling of stream riparian zones based on multi-source Earth Observation data

  
Ecological Indicators, Vol. 24 (January 2013), pp. 211-223, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecolind.2012.06.002

Abstract

Freshwater ecosystems are among the most degraded and threatened globally. A need for systematic assessment of riverine habitats is thus well-documented. Riparian zones are especially important due to the large array of ecosystem and social services they can provide, while also recently gaining a major role in the new European biodiversity policy. In this context, the necessity to gather spatial information on extent, distribution and characteristics of the riparian zones is clear. This paper presents the development of a novel model ...

 

Common Agricultural Policy Regionalised Impact – The Rural Development Dimension. Deliverable: D2.1.3 – Report on additional databases to model/define RD indicator

  
(March 2012), pp. 1-18

Abstract

In order to monitor and assess Rural Development (RD) programmes, the European Commission established the Common Monitoring and Evaluation Framework (CMEF) for the programming period 2007-2013. This framework includes certain indicators dedicated to assessing the main thematic axes of the Council Regulation EC (1698)2005 which reflect the core objectives of the Strategic Guidelines for Rural Development. Consequently, EU member states shall use the CMEF tools to report on the implementation of the RD policy in their respective ...

 

Common Agricultural Policy Regionalised Impact – The rural development dimension, Deliverable: D5.2 – New methodologies to calculate CMEF or alternative indicators

  
(March 2012), pp. 1-38

Abstract

In order to monitor and assess Rural Development (RD) programmes, the European Commission established the Common Monitoring and Evaluation Framework (CMEF ) for the programming period 2007-2013. This framework includes families of indicators aiming at assessing the performance of the EU Rural Development policy of the Council Regulation EC (1698)2005 which reflect the core objectives of the Strategic Guidelines for Rural Development according to 3 thematic axes (competitiveness, environment, quality of life/diversification). Consequently, EU ...
