The project management includes the overall project operations and monitoring, the reporting activity and the production of an After-LIFE Conservation Plan.

Networking with other projects

Very important is the exchange experiences and visits among other Italian and foreign Life + projects involved in the protection of biodiversity and invasive alien plants management.

In networking activities with the LIFE + Project “Conservation interventions of coastal wetland habitats in the SIC Zone of the Capitanata” (Life 09 NAT / IT / 000150), an inspection was conducted in a range of dunes Coastal activity in one of the activities of recovery of the aforesaid project in order to create a useful exchange of knowledge and experience regarding the treatment of tree weed species.

Another inspection was made with the Life Ri.Co.Pri project partners (LIFE09 NAT / IT / 000118) in an area of the Ruffi Mountains in Lazio, a region particularly infested by ailanthus plants.

Further, a collaboration has begun between the “LIFE Alta Murgia” Project and “Resto con Life” Project. The goal of the project is the rehabilitation of the ecosystems of the Tuscan Archipelago islands.

Within the networking activities among other LIFE projects, Francesca Casella carried out an inspection at the pinewood and sandy dunes of Siponto (Manfredonia) with the project managers of the LIFE Zone Umide Sipontine project (LIFE09 NAT / IT / 000213) in December 2017. The areas affected by the control interventions of the invasive tree species Acacia cianophylla were inspected. The objective was to evaluate the results of previous treatments, analyze the critical issues, and support the managers of the LIFE Zone Umide Sipontine project in assessing the need for further intervention and establishing the modalities and the period of intervention.
