COST 341 Habitat Fragmentation due to Transportation Infrastructure

A European Handbook for Identifying Conflicts and Designing Solutions

Wildlife and Traffic is a solution-orientated handbook focused on measures to mitigate habitat fragmentation due to transportation infrastructures (roads, railways and waterways). It is the first European handbook on the topic and was published in 2003 as the main output of the Cost 341 Project promoted by the Infra Eco Network Europe (IENE).

The guidelines are based on the accumulated knowledge of a broad range of experts from different countries, and best practices identified through a literature review and expert knowledge. Now, IENE with the support of the Swedish Transport Administration, has taken the initiative to start a cooperative process to update the handbook.

First step has been to make the document more easily accessible by creating this website where you can browse the chapters!and download them freely. Moreover, it has been created portal to access the most relevant guidelines and handbooks on transport ecology in different countries.

You can participate in the project by providing information, publications or funding. If you are an expert on the topic, you can send your proposal to participate in writing the chapters updates.
