We will answer the question that will be asked in the coming days. Next week, a control action of invasive alien species will begin on this intervention area of the LIFE VIDALIA project. Through mechanical methods, it will be possible to combat the proliferation of several invasive species. The main focus will be on some herbaceous species that cover a large part of the ground in that area, particularly 𝘚𝘵𝘦𝘯𝘰𝘵𝘢𝘱𝘩𝘳𝘶𝘮 𝘴𝘦𝘤𝘶𝘯𝘥𝘢𝘵𝘶𝘮. The invasive alien species are one of the main pressure factors on the natural vegetation of Entre-Montes, where there is a small population of 𝘈𝘻𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘢 𝘷𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘪, one of the target species of the project.
After the superficial removal of the plant layer of the invaded areas, a new phase will begin – the restoration of this 𝘩𝘢𝘣𝘪𝘵𝘢𝘵. 𝘍𝘦𝘴𝘵𝘶𝘤𝘢 𝘱𝘦𝘵𝘳𝘢𝘦𝘢, 𝘌𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢 𝘢𝘻𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢, 𝘚𝘰𝘭𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘨𝘰 𝘢𝘻𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘤𝘢 and 𝘈𝘻𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘯𝘢 𝘷𝘪𝘥𝘢𝘭𝘪𝘪 will be some of the endemic species, characteristic of this area, to be reintroduced to strengthen the population of these species.
This intervention will allow making progress with the conservation action C.4: Complementary conservation works for IAS Control/Eradication in the intervention zones and buffer zones, which is already progressing by 49%.
