Naturerbe – Eine Frage der Kultur

Nature conservation contributes significantly to preserving the natural heritage of Germany. However, conservation has been unable to stop biodiversity loss and the negative effects of intensive land use in such a closely populated country. In this chapter, Rainer Müssner shows how in times of demographic and social change, nature conservation has dangers as well as concrete options as to how to preserve the German cultural landscape.

Global Effects of Doubled Atmospheric CO2 Content on Evapotranspiration, Soil Moisture and Runoff under Potential Natural Vegetation

The atmospheric CO2 content, which might increase more than two-fold by the end of the century, not only has an impact on the global climate, but also directly affects the water balance of the terrestrial biosphere. Anna Leipprand and Dr. Dieter Gerten from the Potsdam-Institute for Climate Impact Research published an article in the Hydrological Sciences Journal that analyses these impacts.Read more

Governance and Ecosystems Management for the Conservation of Biodiversity (GEM-CON-BIO)

February 2006 to January 2008

GEM-CON-BIO aims to explore the interactions between governance modes and sustainable development objectives in particular biodiversity conservation. The objective is to identify through case studies, what type of governance processes and institutions can best contribute to the conservation of biodiversity. Best practice guidelines will be developed and disseminated to those involved in the formulation, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies.

Ecosystem management is a particular approach to management which concentrates on maintaining theRead more

The Value of Biodiversity

December 2005 to March 2006

Escalating human impact on ecosystems is increasingly affecting the capacity of eco-systems to provide services critical to human well-being. The objective of this project is to document EU examples where decreasing bio-diversity has led to the loss/degradation of ecosystem services, and consequently to economic costs and/or social losses. Therefore, 37 relevant examples from 18 Member and Accession States within the EU were analysed. The final project report is available for download.

The outcomes of this scoping study clearly demonstrate that throughout the EU a wide range ofRead more

The Use of Market Incentives to Preserve Biodiversity

December 2005 to April 2006
EU Member States are increasingly using market-based instruments such as taxes, subsidies or tradable permits to conserve Biodiversity. Ecologic has been commissioned by DG Environment to analyse the current use of Market Based Instruments (MBIs) like taxes, fees and charges to protect biodiversity. Based on this, Ecologic collaborated with its project partners in preparing a report that evaluates the success and failure of these instruments and assesses their potential for wider use in different contexts in the future. The report is available for download.Read more

Implementation of Article 12 of the Habitats Directive

October 2005 to March 2006
The aim of this project is to develop concepts for the protection of species in Germany for the implementation of Article 12 of the habitats directive (92/43/EEC). It will focus on the protection of animal species within agricultural land and forestry. Approaches taken by other EU Member States for the implementation of the directive will be taken into consideration. The concept will eventually be tested using two animal species as case studies.Read more
