The characterization of 9580 Habitat* at the ‵Mediterranean Forests of Taxus baccata′ in the Cantabrian Mountains of Castile and Leon was done from various perspectives, as one of the multiple actions implemented within the LIFE BACCATA Project.  
Castile and Leon partners involved in the LIFE BACCATA Project (Castile and Leon Regional Government and CESEFOR Foundation) met last Tuesday, January 15th, in Cervera de Pisuerga Park (Palencia) in order to analyse
Yew tree populations —the featuring specie of the priority habitat 9580*— at the Pagoeta Nature Park (Gipuzkoa) are well represented. These populations are comprised of a large number of specimens and thanks to the nature space management, the regeneration dynamics is quite striking.  

As part of the LIFE BACCATA Project, the characterization of forestry formations with yew trees in Aralar and Pagoeta (Gipuzkoa, Spain) was conducted. The survey included the 3-D high-precision land photogrammetric mapping of the plots which are representative of these spaces.
On the next Thursday, 29 of November, the Agriculture Biodiversity and Rural Development Institute of Lugo (IBADER by its Spanish acronym) organizes the LIFE BACCATA Technical Seminar that is held in the Cactus Building of Lugo Campus
Thanks to this study, the dimensions, structure, and state of conservation of the European yew can be calculated in the yew woods of Tosande, in the Natural Park of Fuentes Carrionas and Fuente Cobre-Montaña Palentina. It will also enable to study the yew tree of San Cristobal de Valdueza, located in the region of El Bierzo.

The external LIFE monitoring team (NEEMO EEIG) –represented by Ainhoa ​​Darquistade Fadrique– performed the annual visit to the LIFE BACCATA project, held in Ojo Guareña, Burgos.
