The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.
This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services.

Factors affecting habitat selection by breeding Lesser Spotted Eagles Aquila pomarina in northeastern Poland
We tested a hypothesis on the influence of prey distribution on habitat selection by the Lesser Spotted Eagle Aquila pomarina in north-eastern Poland during the breeding season We analysed the habitat composition in schematic territories around the nests of 116 breeding pairs of eagles (in a radius of 3 km) and related them to randomly selected sites Next, we compared the habitat requirements of potential prey species with the proportion of different prey categories found in the eagle's diet We demonstrated that, in contrast to random sites, eagle nests were located closer to the forest edges The habitat composition of schematic territories of eagles was different from the random sites owing to the lower proportion of forest and higher proportion of meadows and agricultural land The feeding habits of Lesser Spotted Eagles were opportunistic, and the diet was composed mainly of rodents (voles), insectivorous mammals (hedgehogs and moles), small birds, and amphibians Small prey species (body mass below 50 g) and species indicating preferences for open habitats dominated in the diet of eagles (69% and 74% of prey captured respectively) Prey species inhabiting grasslands were hunted more frequently than species preferring agricultural areas Moreover, eagle pairs nesting deep in the forest interior captured relatively more larger-sized species, whereas the proportion of small prey in the eagle's diet increased as the distance of nest from forest edge decreased We hypothesize that eagles have to breed closer to the forest edge to minimize energy expenditure and time associated with prey capture and delivery to the nest.
