The dataset contains the tabular data as reported by Member States for the 2008-2012 period; this includes population sizes and trends (short and long term) for breeding and wintering populations, as well as pressures and threats for Special Protection Area trigger species. In addition, it includes the population status and trends at the EU level as assessed by the by the European Red List of Birds Consortium (under contract with the European Commission).
Accumulated ozone exposure values, over a threshold of 40 parts per billion, for crops (AOT40c) increase from northern Europe towards the southern Mediterranean countries.
The gradient of the accumulated ozone exposure values over a threshold of 40 parts per billion for forests (AOT40f) is similar to that of the AOT40c (crops). AOT40f increases from northern Europe to reach the highest values in the countries around the Mediterranean
The modelled suitability for the EUNIS habitat types is an indication of where conditions are favourable for each habitat type based on verified sample plot data (Braun-Blanquet database) and the Maxent software package. The modelled suitability maps may be used as a proxy for the potential geographical distribution of the habitat types in given environmental and climatic envelopes. Note however that it is not representing the actual distribution of the habitat types.
This report descibes the EUNIS habitat classification review which provides the context for a number of policy-related ecosystem and habitat assessments. It is a European reference to which other national or regional classifications can be cross referenced. The review of terrestrial EUNIS habitat classification, on the basis of georeferenced vegetation samples, aims to enhance the technical capacity for documenting, monitoring and assessing the quality of habitats at the European level. This work strengthens the knowledge base that is used for assessing progress towards the European Union (EU) and global biodiversity targets for 2020.
The European inventory of nationally designated areas holds information about protected areas and the national legislative instruments, which directly or indirectly create protected areas.
The map shows the condition of agro ecosystems map. Based on pan-European High Nature Value farmland map using as mask the agricultural categories of Corine land cover map of 2006.
Map of indicator on exceedance of critical loads developed here shows the excess in airborne nitrogen depositions per habitat type (EUNIS levels 2 and 3) on forest ecosystem
Total N input to agricultural soils for the year 2010, in kg/ha/yr. Input includes manure application, inorganic fertilizer input, atmospheric deposition and biological fixation.
Metodology based on Corine land cover classes and EEA biogeographical regions.
What comes to your mind when you think of nature, economy and well-being? This was the question the European Environment Agency’s (EEA) photography competition Picture2050 asked Europeans. An external jury and the public selected the five winning entries among hundreds submitted from across Europe. Take a look at the winners.
The EEA coastline for analysis is created for highly detailed analysis, e.g. 1:100 000, for geographical Europe.
The criteria for defining the coastline is the line separating water from land.
The EEA coastline is a product derived from two sources: EU-Hydro and GSHHG.
In the 2015 version of the dataset, several corrections were made in the Kalogeroi Islands (coordinates 38.169, 25.287) and two other Greek little islets (coordinates 36.766264, 23.604318), as well as in the peninsula of Porkkala (around coordinates 59.99, 24.42).
