Road ecology, a science of growing importance for biodiversity and transport. 20 years ago the Infra Eco Network Europe (IENE) was established based on a growing insight of the great importance transport infrastructure have in biodiversity. The term Road Ecology didn’t exist and was launched six years later. Still IENE and Road ecology is very closely connected. The evolution of Road Ecology, from a Science focused on explaining ecological impact from Roads through explaining ecological functions to influencing transport planning and transport development can be explained through the Eyes of IENE and its 20 years of existence.
