The European Red List of Habitats provides an assessment of the risk of collapse of marine, terrestrial and freshwater natural and semi-natural habitats based on a consistent set of criteria and categories and detailed data and expertise. The geographical coverage is the European Union and adjacent regions. The European Red List of Habitats project was funded by the European Commission.

The Excel file includes the codes provided by the European Red List of habitats and the codes, names and crosslinks as enhanced by EEA. It also includes the Red List assessment category. The terrestrial Red List habitats are cross-linked with the EUNIS habitat classification 2012 and revised EUNIS classification 2021 and the habitats listed in Annex I of the Habitats Directive (Directive 92/43/EC). The marine Red List habitats are cross-linked with revised EUNIS marine classification 2022 and with Annex I habitats.   Additional files contain the habitat descriptions of the European Red List habitats from the Red List project. The habitat names in the files are the names refined by EEA but the codes are from the original Red List project database. The key between the EEA refined codes and the Red List project codes is given in the Excel file above.
