The data derive from Corine Land Cover (CLC) for the years 1990 and 2000 and hence have the same geographical coverage and forest definition as CLC; connectivity derived from Conefor Sensinode software of Saura and Torné 2009, and GIS analysis. Range levels are expressed as % of increase (or decrease) of equivalent connected area in 1990. GIS analysis and results aggregated at provincial units, NUTS level 2 or 3.

Fly only for distances greater than 700 km. Otherwise take the train. A transatlantic flight produces almost half as much CO2 as an average person produces over a period of one year while meeting all his or her other needs, such as lighting, heating and car travel!
