Article
Full-text available
Urban agriculture is an emerging challenge. Identifying suitable agrosystems that allow for the multiple functions of urban agriculture represents a key issue for the reinforcement of the agricultural matrix in cities, with the aims of counteracting and adapting to climate change and providing economic and social benefits. This study aims to produc...
Article
Full-text available
Knowledge of forest biomass is an essential parameter for managing the forest in a sustainable way, as forest biomass data availability and reliability are necessary for forestry and forest planning, but also for the carbon market as well as to support the local economy in the mountain and inner areas. However, the accurate quantification of the ab...
Article
Urban viticulture, a globally growing phenomenon, is gaining interest as a strategic multifunctional land use for sustainable cities. In the urban ecosystem, vineyards may represent: i) an economic system that supports short supply chains, ii) a land use that provides essential ecosystem services for well-being and quality of life, like carbon stor...
Article
Full-text available
The transition towards more resilient and sustainable agricultural systems must start from smallholder farms (SHs), that are responsible for one third of total crop production, are crucial to preserve ecosystems services, but are restive to adopt precision viticulture (PV) tools because benefits are considered insufficient to justify the costs. PV...
Article
Full-text available
Timber assortments are some of the most important goods provided by forests worldwide. To quantify the amount and type of timber assortment is strongly important for socio-economic purposes, but also for accurate assessment of the carbon stored in the forest ecosystems, regardless of their main function. Terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) became a pr...
Article
Accurate measurement of forest growing stock is a prerequisite for implementing Climate-Smart Forestry strategies. This study deals with the use of Airborne Laser Scanning data to assess carbon stock at the tree level. It aims to demonstrate that the combined use of two unsupervised techniques will improve the accuracy of estimation supporting sust...

Archaeological Heritage, naturally endangered by environmental processes and anthropogenic pressures, is today increasingly at risk, because of intense human activities and climate change, and their impact on atmosphere and soil. European research is increasingly dedicated to the development of good practices for monitoring archaeological sites and...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Soil erosion poses a serious threat to the preservation of archaeological deposits. The RESEARCH project defined an articulated and innovative workflow that integrates archaeological and geological/environmental data to produce a detailed mapping of soil erosion risk by using open-source software and datasets. This article illustrates the risk asse...
Article
Full-text available
Shallow landslides are an increasing concern in Italy and worldwide because of the frequent association with vegetation management. As vegetation cover plays a fundamental role in slope stability, we developed a GIS-based model to evaluate the influence of plant roots on slope safety, and also included a landslide susceptibility map. The GIS-based...

BACKGROUND Bushfires are becoming an increasing issue for the wine sector due to grape and vine losses and to smoke taint in wine. Smoke affects vine physiology and the smoke volatile phenols are absorbed by plant and berry, contaminating the wine. Our hypothesis has been that, for the first time, UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle)‐based visible images...
Article
Full-text available
Olive groves are key elements of the Mediterranean basin landscape. In southern Italy, olive polycultural systems are predominant over specialized ones. These systems occupy marginal and inner areas and are highly susceptible to abandonment. Their ecological functions in sensitive semi‐arid Mediterranean areas have not been studied enough. The purp...
Article
Full-text available
Plant roots play a key role in stabilizing slopes, particularly in the Mediterranean region, characterized by rough and unstable terrain. However, forest species differ in their stabilizing capacities. The purpose of this study is to fill the gap of knowledge on root biomechanical properties of relevant Mediterranean trees and shrubs in relation to...

The Fondarca Cave, or Grotta delle Nottole, is a large Karst cave on Mount Nerone, a mountain located in the north of the Italian region of Marche. The need to understand aspects of rituals carried out by the ancient inhabitants of central Italy in natural cavities during the Bronze Age makes this cave particularly significant. Systematic investiga...

The correlation between the absent of forests and the occurrence of landslides is well-know. In fact, the forests provide a protection in the soil degradation and erosion through the trees presence and roots contribution. In shallow terrains, soil cohesion is enhanced by roots while the trees modify the soil moisture through increased evapotranspir...

gli apparati radicali giocano un ruolo fondamentale nella stabilizzazione dei versanti ed ogni specie ne determina un apporto diverso, sia in funzione dell’aumento della resistenza al taglio del suolo sia per il miglioramento delle condizioni idrologiche. L’aumento della stabilità dei versanti grazie ai benefici portati da una copertura forestale s...

Il lavoro si deve considerare come la prima fase di un percorso d’analisi inerente le relazioni tra l’accessibilità territoriale e le strutture fisiche, sociali ed economiche dei paesaggi montani

Full-text available
Il presente contributo evidenzia la situazione geologica e geografica della città di Orte e del territorio circostante mettendo in evidenza l’importanza dei fenomeni vulcanici e sedimentari che hanno portato alla definizione morfologica del paesaggio fortemente condizionato dalla presenza del fiume Tevere e del Rio Paranza che lambiscono la rupe ri...
