Bioclimatic modelling, landscape structure, biodiversity and climate change

The work carried out in this WP is on floristic and faunistic diversity in Portugal and statistical analysis in order to relate indicators linked to biological communities with biophysical attributes and agroforestry models. Modelling Mediterranean species to evaluate the past and present species distribution range, using the strawberry tree as a case-study and different software types.
