With over a thousand pages, the series collects sixty-one scientific contributions grouped into nine thematic areas, relating to the research and results achieved from 2015 to 2021. Topics such as meteo-climatic trends, hydrogeology, monitoring of fauna biodiversity and plants, the conservation of forest ecosystems and habitats, agro-zootechnical sustainability and the protection of the landscape but also the theme of social inclusion, the sharing of data on natural capital.
