In this BioDT use case, we study the impact of various forest management strategies (regimes or treatment options) and climate change scenarios on forests and biodiversity.... Read more
This BioDT use case will help researchers and monitoring initiatives to prioritize localities for further sampling with eDNA metabarcoding. New samples will update the model and recalculate priorities. DNA-based efficiently target organisms that normally receive little attention, e.g.... Read more
Honey bees (apis mellifera) provide important services by producing honey and pollinating commercial crops but also a wide range of wild flowers.... Read more
Invasive alien species (IAS) negatively affect biodiversity, ecosystem functioning, and human well-being. The impacts of IAS will likely exacerbate in the future due to new species introductions and the synergy with other drivers of global change.... Read more
This BioDT use case covers Wild boar–African Swine Fever (ASF) modelling is one of two Use Cases under the Disease Outbreaks umbrella and with the Pollinators model will populate and demonstrate this part of the Biodiversity Digital Twin.... Read more
Challenges to food security in the 21st century:... Read more
The Biodiversity Digital Twin (BioDT) project brings together experts in high-performance computing, ecology and artificial intelligence to develop prototype digital twins (DT) that push the limits of predictive biodiversity modeling.
The use case will focus on the Cairngorms National Park in Scotland initially as a proof-of-concept study, we aim to consider other areas and different species in future work.... Read more
