Current state of nature in Flanders reviewed in new report

Announcement of a new publication from ALTER-Net partner, INBO

The Research Institute for Nature and Forest (INBO) - a partner in ALTER-Net - has released a new report ‘ Biodiversity Indicators 2011’. This report evaluates the current state of nature in Flanders by reporting on 21 biodiversity indicators that give the closest interpretation of the 26 European biodiversity indicators proposed by the European Environment Agency (2007).

One of the conclusions drawn in the report is that "... biodiversity loss in Flanders has not been stopped in 2011. It is important to tackle the various negative influences more thoroughly (such as detrimental land use, nitrogen, phosphorus and greenhouse gas emissions and the import and export of species)."

The report is available from the INBO website:
