Biodiversity

"The biodiversity of the Parco delle Foreste Casentinesi is a complex thing, made up of thousands of animal and plant species that interact with each other, environments that evolve, and others that are perpetuated for hundreds of years. Recognizing biodiversity should not be just for naturalists and specialized biologists, we want more and more people to enjoy the beauty of nature and the pleasure of discovery. Over the years, the park has developed various tools to recognise biodiversity: from classic publications to interactive recognition tools that can also become apps for tablets and mobile phones, and online tools such as Webgis to browse updated data on species distribution and the naturalistic emergencies of the Park territory."
