Figure Effective mesh density (number of meshes per 1 000 km2) for NUTSX (combined NUTS 2 and 3) regions, 2009
Three different groups of regions can be distinguished: (1) heavily urbanised regions with a population density higher than 100 inhabitants per km2; (2) ex-urban, generally semi-rural, beyond the suburbs of a city, but experiencing major urban influences such as commuting, and semi-rural regions; (3) rural and remote regions.The heavily urbanised regions have an effective mesh density above 100 meshes per 1 000 km2. On average, these regions are 40 times more fragmented than ex-urban ones. Ex-urban regions have an effective mesh density between 20 and 100 meshes per 1 000 km2. On average, this group is 15 times more fragmented than agricultural (rural) regions. This last group of regions has an effective mesh density ranging from 0.2 to 20 meshes per 1 000 km2.

The Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation (RUSLE) was applied to the whole alpine area. The model calculates annual soil loss (t ha-1 yr-1) based on Rainfall Erosivity Factor (MJ mm ha-1 h-1 yr, Soil Erodibility Factor (t ha h ha-1 MJ-1 mm-1, Slope length Factor (dimensionless), Slope Factor (dimensionless), Cover Management Factor (dimensionless), Human Practices aimed at erosion control.

Highlight Increasing fragmentation of landscape threatens European wildlife
Roads, motorways, railways, intensive agriculture and urban developments are breaking up Europe’s landscapes into ever-smaller pieces, with potentially devastating consequences for flora and fauna across the continent, according to a new joint report from the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the Swiss Federal Office for the Environment (FOEN). The report, 'Landscape fragmentation in Europe', demonstrates how areas of land are often unable to support high levels of biodiversity when they are split into smaller and smaller parcels.
