Research and data gathering
Nature parks are sizeable areas comprising a combination of untouched and man-made landscapes that are rich in flora, fauna and habitats. As these areas also contain unusual geological elements and an extremely broad range of topological features, they are often studied by scientists.
The insights gained from such research and the data gathered for them is crucial when it comes to ensuring sustainable use of nature parks over the long term.
Study concerning birds of prey in Fanes-Sennes-Prags / Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park and Puez-Geisler / Puez-Odle Nature Park
This study, which was commissioned by the provincial office for nature parks (today office for nature), was conducted from 1999 to 2001 by Dr. Antonio Borgo, with the goal of researching the daytime and nocturnal birds of prey species at both nature parks. Dr. Borgo analyzed the habitat of each species, which he then used to draw up potential-distribution maps. The study report was written in Italian.
