Colloquium of the Platform Biodiversity: Avifauna in a changing landscape: the importance of diversity

The alpine landscape is facing major alterations due to environmental changes. Major threats to alpine biodiversity include land use change marked by urbanization and intensification of agriculture in valley bottoms and abandonment of farming practices in marginal areas. Through the monitoring of birds, excellent bioindicators for ecosystem quality, Matteo Anderle will tell us what are the responses of biodiversity to land use change.

Matteo Anderle is an ornithologist, a researcher at Eurac Research’s Institute for the Alpine Environment and at the University of Milan, and a PhD candidate at the University of Innsbruck. His research aims to investigate the effects of land use change and landscape structure on bird communities.

The Colloquium takes place on June 8th 2022, at 6pm at the Museum for Natural Science (via Bottai 1, Bolzano). Due to current Covid measures, only 34 people can attend in person. We therefore ask for registration. Admission is free. Info: Tel. 0471 412964
