Steppe-ahead is an interdisciplinary project which aims to provide new conservation approaches for the conservation of threatened, steppe-land bird species in highly humanized agricultural dominated landscapes. The project approach will be based on the development of landscape use scenarios based on agronomic and local knowledge that will be evaluated both in terms of their economic viability and their potential to host viable populations of the target threatened bird species. This approach should therefore allow guiding the implementation of specific management actions in a sound agronomic context.
