Title Landscape fragmentation
Alternate Title Road Density of Major Roads [73]
Publication Date 2008-04-30
Abstract Road density can be regarded as one significant indicator of human pressure on land resources. Roads not only cut through habitats of plants and animals, the traffic also contaminates the air and causes noise pollution. This is why traffic and transport are among the most crucial issues for Alpine policy-makers. On the one hand, roads have to guarantee access and mobility for the citizens, on the other hand, the protection of environmental quality and health have to be considered as well.
