BioHab – A framework for the co-ordination of Biodiversity and Habitats

Name: BioHab – A framework for the co-ordination of Biodiversity and Habitats
Researchers: Petřík Petr (member of of research group)
Project Type: A - major international projects (at least 3 states)
Realization from: 2001
Realization to: 2005
Summary: The overall objective of this Concerted Action is to produce a methodology for the co-ordination of consistent habitat information across Europe, which can then be linked to biodiversity measures. The main workplan is therefore to bring people together and to organise and structure the description of habitats, which are already available in many different forms. One of the main outputs will be user friendly description of habitats at an appropriate level for consistent application throughout Europe and then, to show how these can be linked to measures of biodiversity. The habitats will be taken from various levels of the EUNIS habitat classification produced for the European Environmental Agency (EEA), using previous experience of their application in the field and an expansion of the rules in the existing key.
