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. A first set of habitat suitability maps for forest types is available. Over the next years more suitability maps of habitat types will be provided from this page.
