biodiversity due to habitat
fragmenTation and degradation,
2006-2008) is the sister project of MACIS. It
synthesizes existing data about land use change and
habitat fragmentation and the effects on biodiversity.
With this information COCONUT develops decision tools
and policy option - jointly with MACIS – for
stopping biodiversity loss.

biodiversity, 2003-2005) provides quantitative
information on how changing land cover/use has affected
the environment and biodiversity in Europe.
