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. 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), which is now leading a cooperative process to keep the handbook updated.

This handbook available results from alliances between researchers and practitioners from different countries compiling accumulated knowledge from the last decades of ecological mitigation, and best practice identified through a literature review and contributions from experts.

The aim is to promote solutions to reconcile biodiversity and transportation infrastructure which are: evidence-based, orientated to action, feasible, effective and innovative.

In this website you can browse the handbook chapters and download them freely. Moreover, you can access a portal to guidelines on transport ecology in different countries.

You can participate in the project by providing information, publications or funding. Please get in touch!
