Restauration strategies of the deteriorated peatland ecosystems from Romania

(PeatRO)

 

 

 

Objectives

 

General objective (aim):

 

The development of national strategies for halting the biodiversity loss in the degraded peatland ecosystems from Romania

 

Specific objectives:

 

Objective 1. Identification and assessment of the areas in need of restoration/reconstruction

Activity 1.1 Identification and assessment of the general state of the peatland ecosystems from Romania

Activity 1.2 Identification and assessment of the main factors which threaten the good functioning and conservation status of the peatland ecosystems from Romania

Activity 1.3 Identification of the ecosystem areas affected by desiccation in Romania

Activity 1.4 Identification of the main areas affected by the fragmentation of peat habitats from Romania

Activity 1.5 Identification of the invasive species which require management/control measures

Activity 1.6 Identification of the main areas with degraded peatland ecosystems in need of restoration/reconstruction

Activity 1.7 Making a cost-benefit analysis for the restoration/reconstruction activities

Activity 1.8 Identification of the areas with peatland ecosystems which act as refuges for species of high conservation value

 

Objective 2. Establishing a national strategy for the restoration of the hydrological regime in degraded peatland ecosystems

Activity 2.1 Assessing the main areas affected by anthropic and/or natural desiccation of peatland ecosystems from Romania

Activity 2.2 Identification of the adequate restoration/reconstruction techniques for the areas affected by anthropic and/or natural desiccation of peatland ecosystems from Romania

Activity 2.3 Restoring some drained peatland ecosystems. Case study: The protected area Mlaca Tătarilor (ROSCI0112)

Activity 2.4 Restoring some drained peatland ecosystems. Case study: The protected area Larion (ROSCI0101)

Activity 2.5 Developing the national plan for the restoration of the hydrological regime in degraded peatland ecosystems.

 

Objective 3. Establishing a national strategy for the elimination of invasive species from the degraded peatland ecosystems

Activity 3.1 Assessing the invasive species which should be controlled

Activity 3.2 Case study: the invasive species Betula pendula

Activity 3.3 Case study: the invasive species Pinus sylvestris

Activity 3.4 Identification of the adequate technologies and methods for the control of invasive species affecting peatland ecosystems from Romania

Activity 3.5 Developing the national plan for the control of invasive species affecting degraded peatland ecosystems

 

Objective 4. Establishing a national strategy for restoring the connectivity between peat habitats

Activity 4.1 Assessing the main areas affected by the fragmentation of peat habitats from Romania

Activity 4.2 Identification of the adequate technologies and methods for the restoration/reconstruction of the areas affected by the fragmentation of peat habitats from Romania

Activity 4.3 Developing the national plan for restoring the connectivity between peat habitats

 

Objective 5. Developing medium- and long-term strategies for the conservation of certain species which are characteristic for the peatlands from Romania

Activity 5.1 Developing an assessing system of the conservation status of species which are typical for peatland ecosystems

Activity 5.2 Developing a system for the identification of species with high conservation value

Activity 5.3 Establishing the methodology of selecting the species which are typical for peatland ecosystems and have a high conservation value, in order to include them in the national medium- and/or long-term conservation plan

Activity 5.4 Case study: Ligularia sibirica

Activity 5.5 Identification and establishment of some modern and adequate techniques for the conservation of endangered species

Activity 5.6 Development of the national plan for the medium-term conservation of the species with high conservation value

Activity 5.7 Development of the national plan for the long-term conservation of the species with high conservation value

 

Objective 6. Integrating the results in a common unitary policy for the reconstruction of the degraded peat habitats from Romania

Activity 6.1 Developing a guide for the restoration of the degraded peatlands from Romania

Activity 6.2 Developing a national program for the restoration of the degraded peatlands from Romania
