Abstract

Ecological networks have been developed all over Europe within nature conservation planning and integrated planning. In the Netherlands the national ecological network is worked out in provincial conservation plans. In the Czech Republic the establishment of the ecological network is part of the nature conservation law. Development of the networks will interfere with other land use. There will be differences between intensive-farming areas and marginal land. The European perspective is that the national networks can merge into a pan-European system. The lack of finances in central, eastern and southern Europe and the early stage of nature conservation development must not be a reason not to develop the ecological networks.
