In the domain of threatened species, research and studies are related mainly to the detection of species and populations at risk, their evolutionary history, biogeography, eco-ethology and trends, to the prediction of the dynamics and extinction risks of small populations, to the development of data collection methodologies adapted to vulnerable species, in particula, individual marking, identification and monitoring techniques, to the design and implementation of restoration programmes.
In the domain of ecosystems, projects focus mainly on the identification, evaluation and demarcation of areas of biological interest, on the definition of selection criteria for protected areas and of adequacy requirements for networks of protected areas, on the design of habitat typologies and catalogues, on the identification of constraints and threats, on the principles of habitat management and their application to complex sites, on the methodologies of trend evaluation, biological indicators and environmental impact studies.
