High Nature Value Farmland in Europe
How to read the map: - green areas are likely to contain primarily HNV land, on the basis of a stratified selection of CORINE land cover classes per country and environmental zone, and national biodiversity data when available - violet areas are likely to contain primarily HNV land in selected Natura2000 sites - orange areas are likely to contain primarily HNV land in selected Important Bird Areas - pink areas are likely to contain primarily HNV land in Primary Butterfly Areas Since the layers are displayed on top of each other the more visible is the green one. The values in the map are a proxy for the proportion of HNV in each 1 km2 cell.
