Ecosystem sensitivity and responses to change: understanding the links between geodiversity and biodiversity at the landscape scale 2011
The aim of the study reported here was to gain a better understanding of the links between geodiversity and biodiversity at a landscape scale and their relevance for conservation management, as well as to promote awareness of such links among JNCC and country agency staff involved in advisory and policy development work. The study was based on a limited review of published and unpublished literature, as well as a consultation exercise among specialists in JNCC’s Lead Co-ordination Networks.
Two case studies from coastal and upland ecosystems emphasise the importance of understanding and working with natural processes.
