Abstract

The proposed integrated-terrestrial-biodiversity-impacts-assessment model has been developed for Ukraine territory using GLOBIO3 method. The digital indicative map of the mean species abundance index (MSA) was produced for the first time for Ukraine. The average value of the index was about 32%. The results determined that the land-use-impact was the dominated pressure inside of terrestrial ecosystems. Its impact within Ukraine agriculture landscapes was higher then others.

Key words: terrestrial ecosystems, biodiversity, mean species abundance, land use, climate change, habitats fragmentation, infrastructure.
