Find out if and how people across Europe perceive biodiversity loss!

eisenwurzenEnvironmental problems are often constructed globally and through sophisticated instruments and methods. However, the extent to which these globally constructed problems correspond to ordinary citizens’ perceptions of the environment is often unclear.
The report “Perceiving biodiversity changes in daily life – insights from an exploratory survey across Europe”, published in “ecomont – Journal on Protected Mountain Areas Research”, focuses on results from an exploratory survey in eight sites across Europe, targeted at ordinary citizens, to determine whether biodiversity changes are perceived in daily life, and, if so, whether the views derived from these perceptions coincide with the discourse about global loss of biodiversity.
For this report Sigrid Grünberger, SERI scientist, worked on the case study site “Eisenwurzen”, an Austrian Limestone Alps National Park. The report was created in the course of the project “ALTER-Net – A Long-Term Biodiversity, Ecosystem and Awareness Research Network”.
