This report presents the results of three years of labour by a team of some 20 experts from nine institutes and organizations in Europe. The BioScore project (in full: Biodiversity impact assessment using species sensitivity scores) responded to a call of the European Commission’s Sixth Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development to develop a cost-effective tool that is able to assess the impacts of Community policies on biodiversity.
