Data Predicted distribution of habitat suitability for EUNIS habitat types
The modelled suitability for the EUNIS habitat types is an indication of where conditions are favourable for each habitat type based on verified sample plot data (Braun-Blanquet database) and the Maxent software package. The modelled suitability maps may be used as a proxy for the potential geographical distribution of the habitat types in given environmental and climatic envelopes. Note however that it is not representing the actual distribution of the habitat types. A first set of habitat suitability maps for forest types is available. Over the next years more suitability maps of habitat types will be provided from this page.
