From Laura Martín:
"The biggest difference between continental and OR/OCT is data density into a spatial unit is much higher.
Islands, given their nature, usually represent a high percentage of the biodiversity of a country (not only species but also habitats and ecosystems). In addition, some activities such as tourism, fishing or maritime transport are much more intense and continuous in time than in continental regions, and also the relationship between sea /land is much narrower...
Probably methods of analysis for our regions will be more complex and they will include modeling or multicriteria techniques"
