Data
The dataset presents the roadless areas (RAs) of Greece (2/2020) in kmz format (Google Earth). RAs are defined as those land patches of a size greater than 1 sq.km that are at least 1 km away from the nearest road. The dataset pinpoints the 1.115 RAs, accounting for 4.99% of the Greek land. The map includes high and medium confidence data. Red poly...

Land use change poses as the top threat for biodiversity decline, and road sprawl as a key driver behind it globally. According to the recent Landscape Fragmentation Indicator (LFI), Greece is less fragmented than the rest of Europe but presents higher rates of fragmentation increase. We developed the Roadless Fragmentation Indicator (RFI) to monit...

Background Over the last 25 years, the prominent forest certification system established by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) has used by many companies worldwide for claiming responsible forest management. The objectives of the Russian National FSC standard to decrease the size of clearcuts and the retention of forest elements such as residual...

Urbanization is one of the most dynamic processes in the context of global change. Deforestation and an increase in land consumption are considered major drivers of shrinking green spaces in urban and peri-urban areas. Forest loss and gain for the period 2001 to 2014 were analysed for nine European cities and their surrounding areas on the basis of...

Straßenlose Räume sind relativ frei von direkten oder indirekten Wirkungen auf Ökosysteme, die nicht allein aus der physischen Straßeninfrastruktur sowie dem Verkehr resultieren (z. B. verändertes Mikroklima, Tötung von Tieren), sondern auch aus anthropogenen Störungen, welche durch Zugang zu den entsprechenden Gebieten erst möglich werden (z. B. R...

Roads fragment landscapes and trigger human colonization and degradation of ecosystems, to the detriment of biodiversity and ecosystem functions. The planet’s remaining large and ecologically important tracts of roadless areas sustain key refugia for biodiversity and provide globally relevant ecosystem services. Applying a 1-kilometer buffer to all...

Project
ROADLESS project goals are: 1. Produce the national map of extended roadless areas (RLAs) in Greece. 2. Assess the value of extended RLAs in terms of ecological functionality. 3. Explore the relationship of large RLAs with Natura 2000 network and its habitats. 4. Investigate the impact of roadless areas on wildlife, considering the case of Balkan chamois in Timfi Mountain, NW Greece. 5. Synthesize scientific findings into a policy briefing. 6. Disseminate results to policy makers and the broad audience.
