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