SOTHE, Camile  and  GOETTEN, Luís Cláudio. Environmental Violations Identified by Environmental Police in Center-North Coast of Santa Catarina. Floresta Ambient. [online]. 2017, vol.24, e20150175.  Epub May 08, 2017. ISSN 1415-0980.

This study conducted a survey of 465 notices of environmental violations (NEV) issued in the area covered by the Environmental Military Police (EMP) of Tijucas in the period of 2010 to 2014. For the analysis, we used descriptive statistics combined with information obtained in the literature. The results showed that the main typifications of the study regard the flora, with approximately 131 ha of affected areas scanned during this period. The municipality with the highest incidence of environmental violations was Nova Trento, followed by Camboriú. It has been verified that the main motivation of violators to suppress native vegetation was earthwork and construction in the municipalities more subject to urban expansion, and to execute planting of exotic species (eucalyptus) at the rural areas. The results showed the necessity to target EMP's efforts in combating environmental violations, especially in preventive actions, such as environmental education and sustainable forest management.
