Resumo


This work aims at developing a study about the forest fragments in the Ariranha basin in Santa Catarina state, Brazil, by observing the geomorphologic characteristics and environmental fragility in order to propose the reforestation among the fragments to generate ecological corridors. The methodology consisted of the following steps: natural forest fragments mapping using IKONOS image, metrics calculation of the fragments and comparison between a scenario with the actual fragmentation and a fictitious scenarios where preservation areas would be fully vegetated. The methodology allowed supplying subsides for implementation of an ecological corridor project including priorities areas for conservation..
