Additional information

• The proportion of species assessed as 'unfavourable — bad' exceeds 20 % in most of the biogeographical regions.

• However, the highest percentage of 'unfavourable-bad' assessments is in the Continental and Atlantic regions.

• The proportion of 'favourable' assessments exceeds 20 % in the Alpine, Boreal, Macaronesian and Pannonian regions.

• The proportion of 'unknown' assessments is overwhelming in most of the marine regions indicating that gaps in knowledge are in general much higher for the marine environment than for the terrestrial environment.
