The coast and island habitats of Tuscany: present situation, vulnerability and perspectives. A synthetic data set drawn from a Tuscan regional project (Repertorio Naturalistico Toscano) intended to individuate sites with habitats of European and regional importance in its territory, focused on coast and island habitat of conservation interest is reported and discussed. A synthetic method to assess habitat evaluation in terms of quality and vulnerability is illustrated. Finally, some scientific-vegetation investigations and management actions of active conservation resulted from basic knowledge studies are briefly presented.
