Drive project

Drive is a research project funded by the EU Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions (Ref: H2020-IF-RI-2015-707587).

Drive intends to quantifying the relative importance of natural and anthropogenic drivers of spatial variation in vulnerability to predict species extinction risk. The project has three main aims:

  1. To build a novel biogeographic template that will help to incorporate the species environmental context into ecological predictive models.
  2. To determine the differential role of natural and anthropogenic factors in driving spatial variation in vulnerability
  3. To include the species inherent vulnerability as a key intrinsic trait into models predicting species extinction risk.
