Impact of habitat change on species at EU level
- Threatened dragonflies (95 % of species) and butterflies (100 % of species) are the groups most impacted by habitat change.
- Proportionately, threatened species (100 %) are impacted more than non-threatened species (10 %) in butterflies; significantly more than in any other group.
- For reptiles (just under 55 %) and amphibians (over 80 %) non-threatened species are impacted by habitat change proportionately more than threatened species.
