Biodiversity Monitoring South Tyrol

Biodiversity Monitoring South Tyrol is an ongoing survey of our inventory of nature. The monitoring not only serves basic research, but is also intended to provide the scientific basis for political decisions concerning spatial planning, agriculture and nature conservation. It surveys sensitive species groups that react to climate and land-use changes. Apart from single taxonomic groups, the survey will also include the landscape and habitats of the surrounding areas.
All this information is assessed in 320 sites distributed over the entire province of South Tyrol (7400 km2) including a large share of the diversity of habitats in our region. The monitoring studies both man-made and managed habitats and near-natural habitats like forests, wetlands and alpine sites.

Biodiversity Monitoring South Tyrol has been set up under the direction of Eurac Research in collaboration with the Museum for Nature South Tyrol and the province of South Tyrol’s Nature Conservation Department.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
