Landscape, habitats and biodiversity

Landscapes provide habitats for animal and plant species. Historically, agricultural intensification has led to a severe decline of natural and semi-natural habitats and consequently to a biodiversity decrease. Due to continued urbanisation and development of infrastructure as well as a continued agricultural intensification, in a Danish context, there is a large pressure on land resources.

In various projects, we address how land use and land use structure affect habitats and biodiversity. The list below gives examples of projects within the area of landscape, habitats and biodiversity:
