Enhancing Biodiversity and Ecosystems Services in Quarries – Challenges, Strategies, and Practice is a conference sponsored by Secil, to be held at University of Évora, Portugal, from 2-4 May 2018,
This topic of biodiversity in queries is transversal to Geo-Resources and Geo-Enviromnent.
Quarry exploitation is an activity with the global expression that due to its extractive nature has strong impacts on habitats, fauna, and flora in both quarrying and surrounding areas. Growing awareness on this issue has engaged both industrial and scientific communities to pair up and commit to ecological goals, aiming to restore biodiversity, safeguard natural values, and ecosystem services. This has urged a demand for concrete and realistic solutions that move towards sustainable exploitation of resources in the extracting industry.
