Abstract

Groundwater conservation and management planning in the Lessinian Massif (Veneto, Italy)is herein discussed following an ecological approach dealing with stygobiont species. Theaim was to provide baseline signposts for the sustainable management of groundwater sites in order to guarantee the preservation of the stygobiota. The approach is organised in the following steps: 1) groundwater biodiversity assessment; 2) selection of priority sites for conservation; 3) selection of respect zones for the priority sites; 4) evaluation of the main anthropogenic risk drivers; 5) assessment of aquifer intrinsic vulnerability; 6) evaluation of risk; 7) proposal of sustainability signposts.
