    connectivity that allows species to spread and move around Without these connections there is a greater risk of extinction There is increasing interest in restoring habitats at a landscape and regional scale This study conducted under the EU SCALES project presents a new method of mapping habitat change to assist these efforts The researchers argue that mapping is an important first step in conservation planning with implications for the EU s Natura 2000 initiative and that their approach is unique in that it can cover a large area of land show small details and assess changes over a long period of time In a case study in Dorset UK the researchers combined historic maps and soil data from the 1930s before the onset of intensive agriculture and developed appropriate habitat classifications such as heathland and managed grassland The information was used to produce a digital map of Dorset in the 1930s with a fine scaled resolution of 25 x 25 metres This was then compared to a land cover map of Dorset produced from satellite data for the year 2000 revealing changes in habitat Further information This news item is based on an article from the Science for Environment Policy news alert service The full article can be found here http ec europa eu environment integration research newsalert pdf 290na2 pdf PDF file SCALES Securing the Conservation of biodiversity across Administrative Levels and spatial temporal and Ecological Scales is supported by the European Commission under the Seventh Framework Programme See www scales project net Original scientific paper Hooftman D A P Bullock J M 2012 Mapping to inform conservation A case study of changes in semi natural habitats and their connectivity over 70 years Biological Conservation 145 1 30 38 DOI 10 1016 j biocon 2011 09 015 ALTER Net
