SCALES goes global in addressing critical issues in nature conservation
Date:12/6/2012

Scientists involved in SCALES (Securing the Conservation of biodiversity across Administrative Levels and spatial, temporal, and Ecological Scales), a large-scale integrating research project funded by the 7th Framework Program (FP7) of the European Union, have identified several critical issues in nature conservation caused by mismatches between the scale at which ecological processes take place and those at which management and policy decisions are made. The need for implementation of scale-based approaches in policy and management becomes urgent.

Similar problems exist worldwide and can be resolved with joint effort at a multi-scale, international level. A team of Taiwanese scientists from the National Taiwan University (NTU) has joined the EU project SCALES since 2011, and the first results of the successful cooperation have been presented at a dedicated SCALES meeting held in Taipei on Taiwan, from 26th of November to 1st of December, 2012.

Dr. Klaus Henle from the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research - UFZ in Leipzig, Germany and coordinator of SCALES opened the discussion: "The threats to nature have no borders, but it is not sufficient to manage them just by comparing the experience of the researchers from different countries. It is crucially important to experiment and test one and the same methods and practices in different biogeographical regions, under different social and cultural traditions".

Prof. Yu-Pin Lin from the National Taiwan University (NTU), supported by National Science Council of Taiwan (ROC), added: "Scientists should be cautious when proposing nature conservation measures, because their conclusions may be based on an inappropriate scale. This is why the SCALES team at NTU have put substantial effort into producing a novel knowledge
