The widest range of activities is realised within species diversity of macrofungi, vascular plants and their communities, soil microorganizms, terrestric invertebrates, including Millipedes, Opiliones, Diplopods, beetles and ants, aquatic macroinvertebrates, bark beetles (Scolitidae), birds, mammals.
