EUNIS habitat classification

Data Created 26 May 2014 Published 26 May 2014 Last modified 11 Mar 2015, 03:30 PM
The EUNIS habitat classification is a comprehensive pan-European system to facilitate the harmonised description and collection of data across Europe through the use of criteria for habitat identification. It is hierarchical and covers all types of habitat types from natural to artificial, from terrestrial to freshwater and marine.

European data

EUNIS habitat classification 2007

The full list of EUNIS habitats (2007): codes, scientific names and revised descriptions. The EUNIS habitat descriptions were revised in 2012. The revisions are mostly replacing Palaearctic or UK Marine habitat classification codes used in habitat descriptions at levels 5 and below with their EUNIS classification equivalents.
