The European Topic Centre on Nature Conservation (ETC/NC) was appointed in December 1994 by the European Environment Agency’s Management Board to carry out specific tasks identified in the Agency’s Work Programme.

The report for 1996 summarises the main results and points to future work needed. In 1996 the ETC/NC became increasingly involved in the Agency’s reporting tasks and in collaboration with other ETCc, but the main tasks were still continuations of work started in 1995.

The ETC/NC performed the following main tasks in 1996:

  • Technical support to the EU Commission in handling incoming data from Member States on sites for the NATURA 2000 Network, including assistance to a regional seminar for Macaronesia.
  • Updating of information on datasources on nature.
  • Major work on definition of the content and the first data collections for a European Information System on Nature - EUNIS - which aims to serve both the Commissions’ NATURA 2000 information needs and the Agency’s wider reporting and integration needs.
  • Development of a Pan-European descriptive frame and revised Habitat classification.
  • Development of first list of synonyms for environmentally important species.
  • Continuation of development of map on ecological regions in Europe.
  • Assistance in definition of indicators for the Agency’s reporting needs.
  • Assistance to the Agency monograph on excess nutrients in the environment.
  • Assistance to the Agency in representation and preparation for meetings.
