The authors extend ESPI, Enviromentally Sensitive Patch Index, to the territories of Sicily's largest protected area, Nebrodi Park. ESPI allows to quantify the sensitivity of a territory to desertification by moving from MEDALUS protocol, MEditerranean Desertification Areas and Land USe. ESPI is applied to three scenarios - the first half and the second half of the 20th century, as well as a projection in the year 2030 and to the respective 3 Climatic Indexes. ESPI confirms expectations by allowing the authors to appreciate the extent of the response to land use changes and the incidence of the climatic component.

Abstract

The authors extend ESPI, Enviromentally Sensitive Patch Index, to the territories of Sicily's largest protected area, Nebrodi Park. ESPI allows to quantify the sensitivity of a territory to desertification by moving from MEDALUS protocol, MEditerranean Desertification Areas and Land USe. ESPI is applied to three scenarios - the first half and the second half of the 20th century, as well as a projection in the year 2030 and to the respective 3 Climatic Indexes. ESPI confirms expectations by allowing the authors to appreciate the extent of the response to land use changes and the incidence of the climatic component.
