‘Islands’ of biodiversity

Identify and evaluate the effectiveness of the electricity transmission towers as stepping-stones for wildlife. These structures could provide a more heterogeneous landscape framework, which would generate more possibilities of movements of organisms and reduce the time and energy invested in their movements and normal activities (R&D+i Project).

Geographic scope: 

Cordoba (Andalusia)

Results: 
  • Significant increase in the biodiversity at the base of the towers with the presence of small mammals, birds and the natural growth of native vegetation as a source of food and shelter.
Period: 

2008-2012

In collaboration with: 
  • Doñana Biological Station (CSIC)
  • Gypaetus Foundation
