Co-ordinated from Imperial College London, BioScene investigates the implications of agricultural restructuring, decline and abandonment for biodiversity conservation in Europe’s mountain areas.

BioScene takes six case study areas across Europe (Norway, Scotland, Switzerland, Slovakia, France and Greece) and combines ecological modelling with social survey to determine and analyse the relationship between biodiversity and farming trends in these mountain areas

Project outputs will detail the opportunities and threats arising from further agricultural decline and will evaluate the ecological, social, economic and political sustainability of different regional management scenarios and the predicted biodiversity consequences (the ‘BioScenes’).

Practical recommendations for the development of EU biodiversity. Agri-environmental and rural policy will be generated by regular interaction with regional stakeholder groups throughout the lifetime of the project. Project outputs aim to contribute to implementation of the European Biodiversity Strategy and the European Biodiversity Action Plans

BioScene is a 3-year project funded under the EU 5th Framework Energy, Environment and Sustainable Development The BioScene project commenced on 1 December 2002, coinciding with the UN International Year of Mountains, and runs parallel with ongoing discussions on mountain bidiversity by the Scientific Advisory Body (SBSTTA) of the Convention on Biological Diversity
