GIS Map Application Macrophytes in lakes
This map shows the ecological status (i.e. status or potential) of macrophytes in European lakes (i.e. lakes and reservoirs) potentially impacted by eutrophication. The ecological status class of a country's waterbodies (or stations) is assessed by each country according to their national classification system, following the Water Framework Directive. The assessment may be based by one or more samples measured during the year of reporting. The purpose of this map is to show ecological status of individual biological quality elements (BQEs) and the major impact types. In comparison, the map layer "Ecological status or potential of water bodies" in the WFD Surface Water Viewer (, displays ecological status or potential based on all BQEs combined, represented by the BQE with the worst class (the "one-out-all-out" principle). Moreover, the maps based on SoE-WISE biological data will be updated yearly, whereas the WFD database will be updated every 6th year.

Publication EU 2010 Biodiversity Baseline
The EU 2010 Biodiversity Baseline provides facts and figures on the state and trends of the different biodiversity and ecosystem components. It thereby supports the EU in developing the post‑2010 sub‑targets and provides factual data for measuring and monitoring progress in the EU from 2011 to 2020.
