Fokusgebiete für den Schutz und die Förderung von Vogelarten der Schweizer Landwirtschaft

Die landwirtschaftliche Nutzung beeinflusst die Artenvielfalt, die zu schützen eine Herausforderung darstellt. Eine Studie hat potenzielle Verbreitungsgebiete prioritärer Vogelarten (Artverbreitungsmodelle) mit der landwirtschaftlichen Nutzungsauswirkung (Ökobilanzierung) verbunden. Basierend darauf wurde eine räumlich explizite Karte mit Fokusgebieten für den Erhalt und die Förderung dieser Arten produziert.
