Our environment is precious. Our quality of life depends on the optimal management of its resources. As we know nowadays, it is a very complex ecosystem, being the result of a wide set of species and elements that interact in a complex net. But the environment is fragile. It is well-known that the set of relationships between the different subsystems may be altered by human actions. These actions affect the biodiversity. Thus, government, industry and the public must act to avoid further damages. We must be capable of developing and applying an integrated approach to affront the problem(s) in the most efficient way.
