SP 2 - Driving Factors of ESF/ESS (field assessments)

In a gradient of predominantly agriculturally used sites, assessments of the impacts of different pressures (social system, climate, land use) and biodiversity on the LEGATO ESF/ESS strands are analysed via correlative approaches in rice based landscapes. Baseline data have to be compiled and/or collected in close cooperation with agricultural and other research and extension institutions. New data are to be compiled in close cooperation with local farmers and authorities and in close coordination among the different LEGATO partners.
