Additional information

Modifications adopted by the Bern Convention Standing Committee and approved by habitats Committee in 05-04/03. Opposed to former versions this layer has an improved geographical scale of 1:1000000. This means that it can also be used to analysis purposes. Note, however, that this version has a poorer geographical coverage than the former versions.
