Nature Conservation article featured in SEP policy briefs
08.03.2013

The article “’Mind the gap!’ – How well does Natura 2000 cover species of European interest?” published in Nature Conservation in December, 2012, has been now featured in the latest issue of SEP policy briefs. The piece named “Do Natura 2000 sites protect the most vulnerable species?”, was disseminated on 7th March 2013.

Abstract:
New research suggests that Natura 2000 sites are highly effective in minimising the number of endangered species of concern to European conservation. The findings may reduce concerns that poor coordination between Member States in setting up the European network of protected areas has led to inadequate protection of vulnerable species.
