Parco Nazionale dell'Arcipelago Toscano

The Tuscan Archipelago National Park funded the sequencing of about 650 specimens from all the major islands of the Archipelago. This funding will finally clarify the systematic position of a large number of species considered endemic to the Italian islands and will be a key source of information for their conservation.

Parco Regionale della Maremma

The Maremma Regional Park funded the sequencing of about 200 butterflies from the territory of the Uccellina Mountains.
This "fossil island" is particularly interesting as it is well known that several of its faunal elements are shared with Sardinia, Corsica and the Tuscan Archipelago. The sequencing of all species will reveal whether these relationships also exist at the level of genetic lineages.

Fondazione Zegna

 

Fondazione Zegna funded the sequencing of the Butterfly fauna of the Province of Biella.
This territory (910 sq km) is strongly marked by the contrast between the mountains and the plains due to the extreme variability of its topography and the large diversity in altitude. Thanks to the richness and variety of environment and landscape, the Biella area has often been called a "showcase of landscapes”. Among the protected areas of the Province of Biella we find the "Oasi Zegna" created by the group E. Zegna.

National Park of Casentino Forests

 

The National Park of Casentino Forests funded the barcoding of its butterfly species.

The National Park of Casentino Forests, Monte Falterona, Campigna covers an area of about 36,000 ha, equally divided between Emilia Romagna and Tuscany, including the provinces of Forlì-Cesena, Arezzo and Florence. It extends along the Tuscan-Romagna Apennines, descending steeply along the parallel valleys of the Romagna region, and at a more gradual in the Tuscan side, which comes with more gentle slopes, to the wide valley formed by the Arno.
