Design of an ecological network for Piano di Navelli (Abruzzo); networks for LIFEE

    Research output: Book/ReportReportAcademic


    This report provides a design for an ecological network at Piano di Navelli, Abruzzo, Italy. The design is based on habitat and corridor requirements of five indicator species: green lizard (Lacerta bilineata), Italian crested newt (Triturus carnifex)water shrew (Neomys fodiens), hedgehog (Erinaceus europaeus) and red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris). Corridor dimensions, guidelines for habitat development within the corridors, and suggestions for wildlife passages at locations where the ecological network crosses roads are given. The ecological network is mapped for each species. An artist's impression visualizes the future situation of Piano di Navelli.
