Concrete conservation actions

C5 Redaction of guidelines for the evaluation of the effects of active heathland management on bioiversity, using breeding birds as ecological indicators

The objective of this action is to establish guidelines for the impact assessment of plans or heathlands management projects for production of brooms that can be developed in other geographical areas.

One of the objectives of LIFE GRANATHA is to define a model for the management and use of heathlands that can be exported to other areas and which guarantees the improvement of the conservation status of populations of nesting birds. With this action we aim to provide a methodological tool to support incidence assessment procedures, in particular to identify the components (species or groups of species) that are potentially more sensitive and on which it is therefore more appropriate to focus attention.
