Grasslands are one of the most important ecosystems on Earth, covering approximately onethird of the Earth’s surface. Grassland biodiversity is important as many services provided by such ecosystems are crucial for the human economy and well-being. Given the importance of grasslands ecosystems, in recent years research has been carried out on the potential to monitor them with novel remote sensing techniques. Improved detectors technology and novel sensors providing finescale hyperspectral...
Patterns of genomic variation in three species of Alpine grouse: conservation and management using SNPs
In light of rapidly decreasing levels of biodiversity, conservation efforts towards the sustainable management of species and their ecosystems is becoming increasingly relevant. The black grouse (Lyrurus tetrix), rock ptarmigan (Lagopus muta) and western capercaillie (Tetrao urogallus) are listed as ‘Least Concern’ by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. However, at the southern edges of their ranges, these species are often more fragmented and some populations are classi...
Ecological connectivity in the Alpine anthropic matrix. Natural reserves and corridors for the conservation of brown bear in the Alps (ABC - AlpBearConnect)
Large carnivores are among the most challenging species to conserve in our modern and crowded world. Having large spatial requirements and living in low density, they generally require wide and relatively undisturbed areas. In Europe, one of the most anthropized areas of the planet, these needs must be fulfilled in a complex human-dominated landscape. The reintroduced brown bear population living in the Central Alps represents one of the most emblematic examples of a constrained carnivore: de...
GC×GC is an efficient tool for the analysis of volatile compound. However, improvements are still required on VOC extraction, GC×GC setup and data processing. Different sample preparation techniques and GC×GC setup were compared based on the literature study and experimental results. Each VOC extraction technology has its own drawbacks and needs new developments. There wasn’t an ideal sample preparation technique to recover all the VOCs from the beverage sample. Furthermore, the VOCs re...
Fine spatial scale modelling of Trentino past forest landscape and future change scenarios to study ecosystem services through the years
Landscape in Europe has dramatically changed in the last decades. This has been especially true for Alpine regions, where the progressive urbanization of the valleys has been accom- panied by the abandonment of smaller villages and areas at higher elevation. This trend has been clearly observable in the Provincia Autonoma di Trento (PAT) region in the Italian Alps. The impact has been substantial for many rural areas, with the progressive shrinking of meadows and pastures due to the fore...
