- Thesis: The colonial Herons of Latium (Central Italy), actual and potential distribution of the heronries
The Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) is the European Union's main instrument for agricultural planning, with a new reform approved for 2023-2027. The CAP intends to be aligned with the European Green Deal, a set of policy initiatives underpinning sustainable development and climate neutrality in the EU, but several flaws cast doubts about the compa...
1. Biological invasions have emerged as one of the main drivers of biodiversity change and decline, and numbers of species classed as alien in parts of their ranges are rapidly rising. The European Union established a dedicated regulation to limit the impacts of invasive alien species (IAS), which is focused on the species on a Union List of IAS of...
We developed the DAMA (Distribution of Alien MAmmals) database, a comprehensive source reporting the global distribution of the 230 species of mammals that have established, self‐sustaining and free‐ranging populations outside their native range due to direct or indirect human action. Every alien range is accompanied by information on its invasion...
Biological invasions have emerged as one of the main drivers of biodiversity change and decline, and numbers of alien species are rapidly rising. The European Union established a dedicated regulation to limit the impacts of invasive alien species (IAS), which is focused on a Union List of IAS of particular concern. However, no previous study has sp...
Durante l’Antropocene, la biodiversità sta vivendo una grave crisi causata da diversi fattori antropogenici, fra cui il cambiamento dell’habitat, del clima e le invasioni biologiche, che non sono indipendenti l’uno dall'altro. Le specie invasive possono causare gravi impatti sulla biodiversità attraverso la competizione, la predazione, la diffusion...
During the 2016 breeding season we recorded the 18 heronries present in Lazio (Central Italy; Fig.1). We registered 7 species in the colonies with 1116 total pairs (Fig. 2). The estimated breeding pairs are (Tab. 1): Cattle Egret Bubulcus ibis 483 in six sites, Grey Heron Ardea cinerea 249 in seven sites, Night Heron Nycticorax nycticorax 187 in ni...
A new small heronry of Grey Heron has been discovered in 2016, located in a small, semi-submerged White Willow Salix alba wood close to the Canterno lake in the homonymous Natural Regional Reserve. The colony came to be in 2012 and the species has been successfully breeding there since. Currently we counted seven nests, six occupied, placed at a he...
In the Latium region (Central Italy) six species of colonial herons (Ardeinae) are present: the Grey Heron (Ardea cinerea), the Purple Heron (Ardea purpurea), the Squacco Heron (Ardeola ralloides), the Little Egret (Egretta garzetta), the Cattle Egret (Bubulcus ibis) and the Night Heron (Nycticorax nycticorax). Except for Gray heron and Cattle egret, all these species are conservation concern, included in Annex I of the Birds Directive so, in application of this, the Latium Region has started this project, collaboration between the Management of Environment and Natural Systems of Latium and the “Sapienza” University of Rome, whose aim is to identify the factors that determine the potential distribution of the heronries within the borders of the region.
