Scientific Results

Development of the Alien Species (AS) showcase – "Patterns of ecosystem fragility to alien and invasive species in Europe" – which uses biodiversity data on species occurrence provided by sites of the LTER-Italy network and LifeWatch partners to investigate the pattern of susceptibility of different EUNIS habitats to invasive ASs.

The example of the showcase confirms the true value of the scientific innovations and achievements arising from the Thematic Centre's activities, offering new knowledge and new ways to address biodiversity conservation and management (e.g. prioritising conservation measures for habitat and ecosystem fragility). The results will also be quantified bibliometrically.
