The dry forest is currently the most threatened of the Caledonian biomes. It is truly the heart of the Caledonian ecosystems, which are known world wide for their exceptional biodiversity. The terms “dry forest” or “sclerophyllous forest” are given to forest formations that develop in a dry climate (less than 1100mm of rain per year). In comparison, the rest of the island of Grande Terre receives about 2500mm of rain per year. The Caledonian dry forests are found on the west end of New Caledonia and extend to up to 300 meters à 400m above the coast. They are often found on sedimentary rock, and occasionally on basaltic rock. For about six months each year, they are subject to a dry season with drying trade winds. ...

The project „100 fields for biodiversity“ aims at establishing a nationwide conservation field network for wild arable plant species. Through this project, which is financially supported by the Deutsche Bundestiftung Umwelt (DBU, www.dbu.de), there is a realistic chance of countering the ongoing loss of species by implementing a network of conservation fields. The conservation of typical arable plant communities such as Caucalido-Adonidetum flammeae, Teesdalio-Arnoseridetum and Papaveretum argemones should be ensured within every ecosystem of Germany with the help of these „conservation fields“. On these fields, crop management is carried out without herbicide use and according to the growth preferences of the wild arable plants. The conservation fields should act as future centres for potential re-colonisation of rare species. ... [Information of the supplier]
The Boreal Songbird Network is a network of conservation and birding groups including the American Bird Conservancy, National Wildlife Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Natural Resource Defense Council, National Audubon Society, Defenders of Wildlife, and others interested in raising awareness in the U.S. and Canada about the importance of the Boreal Forest to North American migratory birds. This network works to educate and activate about the Boreal. Keeping the Boreal Forest message alive in the U.S. and making our voices heard in Canada will have global environmental implications. ...
