Based on traditional practices used by farmers of Lemnos, this guide is designed to be used as the basis for operation of the Land Stewards Network, a voluntary network of practitioners, and to create an environmental/landscape label.
Genetic Diversity and Population Structure of the Sheep of Lemnos, Lesvos and Agios Efstratios Islands
A study to examine crossbreeding between the local sheep population and the Lesvos sheep which its population gradually expanded on the island and maintained for about 30 years when other sheep breeds began resulting in new crossings.
This report explains further about the better elements of the traditional Mandra system compared to newly introduced systems to manage Lemnos farming and stockbreeding regime, urging the revisitation of the traditional system.
A study on the establishment of a permanent plot-based monitoring system focusing on arable land to assess the impact (success) of specific agro-pastoral practices on biodiversity using bio-indicator species to expand the knowledge of overall floristic species diversity on Lemnos Island.
A study to examine the change and evolution of Lemnos' landscape by exploring the trajectories of change, understand the processes and the temporal trends for further exploration of the socio-economic drivers that underlie landscape changes.
Assessment Report for the Interconnections of Land Use Practices and Land Abandonment with Biodiversity and Soil Characteristics
This report is about the Terra Lemnia project attempts to support the biodiversity-friendly agro-pastoral practices developed around the original mandra systems and re-establish the broken links between arable farming and stockbreeding in Lemnos Island.
This report assesses the impacts of wild rabbits on the agro-pastoral ecosystems of Lemnos and analyzes methods of population control and mitigation of damages caused on agricultural production.
This report analyses the current status of avifauna on arable land, pastoral land and vineyards of four representative pilot areas of Lemnos, aiming to assess the relation between particular bird species and agro-pastoral practices.
This report dives into the complex agro-silvo-pastoral systems of the Greek islands,characterised as fragile ecosystems, whose character has been historically defined by their limited potential for intensive agricultural production.
This report analyses the characteristics and current condition of Lemnian soils, based on field recordings and laboratory analysis of samples that have been collected in representative areas of the island.
This report is a recording of the diversity of avifauna in a wide range of agro-ecosystems such as cereal crops, vineyards, meadows, phrygana and more which are present on the island through designed sampling linking either the biocommunity of birds as a whole or individual species with specific farming practices.
This report records the land use of Lemnos such as arable land, permanent crops, grazing lands, heterogeneous agricultural areas, forests, transitional forest to shrub areas, combinations of shrub and/or herbaceous vegetation, areas of sparse or no vegetation, inland areas covered by water, and artificial areas.
This report examines Lemnos agrobiodivesity along with expressing the importance of monitoring the status of agrobiodiversity in Lemnos and assess the genetic erosion that has been caused particularly because of the farmers’ practices as well as their preferences.
On the Move for 10000 Years: Biodiversity Conservation through Transhumant and Nomadic Pastoralism in the Mediterranean
A report on the practice of transhumance and nomadic pastoralism, key threats to the practice and reasons for decline, and its links to biodiversity conservation, produced by the Mediterranean Consortium for Nature & Culture.
