Pulina, Giuseppe and Canalis, Caterina and Manni, Cristiano and Casula, Antonio and Carta, Luisa Assunta and Camarda, Ignazio (2016) Using a GIS technology to plan an agroforestry sustainable system in Sardinia. Journal of Agricultural Engineering , Vol. 47 (s1), p. 23. ISSN 1974-7071. eISSN 2239-6268. Article.
This study was conducted with the aim to quantify the spread of livestock agroforestry in a Mediterranean ecosystem (island of Sardinia, Italy) and evaluate its sustainability in terms of grazing impact. By using GIS software ArcMap 10.2.2, the map of Sardinia vegetal landscape, obtained by information of Sardinia nature map based on the classification of habitat according to CORINE-Biotopes system, have been overplayed with the map of livestock grazing impact map CAIA developed by INTREGA (spin-off ENEA), to obtain for Meriagos (local agro-silvo-pastoral systems; classified “Dehesa 84.6” according to CORINE-Biotopes system), bushlands and woodlands, the surfaces under grazing and evaluate the extension of overgrazing for each of them.
