3. Vulnerability of European Biotopes

Introduction

Assessing ecosystem and habitat type vulnerability to invasion/colonisation of non indigenous species (NIS) is key to focus conservation actions protecting them from the negative impacts related to NIS invasiveness. This validation case aims at mapping ecosystem and habitat type vulnerability at continental scale, inferring the relevance of key risk factors (e.g., vectors of invasion) and intrinsic resistance/resilience components (e.g., native biodiversity, food web structure, …) and design scenarios of change, in the context of expected climate changes, for ecosystem and habitat types found highly vulnerable to NIS. 

Workflow will be available soon on this page.
