Welcome to the European BIodiversity Orchards - Network
Biodiversity in the European agricultural landscape is decreasing due to extensive land use, fragmentation, monocultures and species loss. Orchards are landscape-dominating perennial agroecosystems and their management impacts species abundance and diversity at large spatial scale. Thus fruit-growers can actively influence the level of European Biodiversity by their cultural practices. But they can also profit from the Ecosystem Services provided by elements of the so-called Functional Agrobiodiversity (FAB) which can be actively created by orchard management.
The EBIO-Network has been established as a tool for connecting European fruit growers with stakeholders from research, advisory services and organizations in order to share experiences, new knowledge, achievements, hurdles and solutions for FAB establishment in European orchards.
This Platform was created by
A project run by CORE Organic Plus
The EcoOrchard project was funded
by ERA-Net CORE Organic Plus Funding Bodies partners of the European Union's FP7 research and innovation programme under the grant agreement No. 618107.
JKI's contribution was funded by by the Federal programme for organic farming and other forms of sustainable agriculture (FKZ: 14OE005) of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture
What's new18th of January 2019 – EcoOrchard on the International Green Week in Berlin!
The EcoOrchard-Project will be presented by the JKI-Group within the framework of the Federal programme for organic farming and other forms of sustainable agriculture of the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BÖLN).
