What is SUMHAL?
This is a European project, framed within the LifeWatch ERIC pan-European distributed e-Science infrastructure, which aims to contribute to the conservation of biodiversity in Andalusia, through field work and virtual research environments.
This involves six Andalusian research centres and institutes, coordinated among themselves, in pursuit of a strategy for the preservation of biodiversity and the sustainable management of natural systems as heterogeneous and fragile as those existing in Andalusia, requiring both a “conservation assessment” and a “threat assessment”.
