EUNIS Habitat Classification - Revised [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
The habitat classification forms an integral part of the European Nature Information System (EUNIS), developed and managed by the European Topic Centre for Nature Protection and Biodiversity (ETC/NPB in Paris) for the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Environmental Information Observation Network (EIONET). The EUNIS habitat system consists of a database together with explanatory documentation. EUNIS habitats are arranged in a hierarchy, starting at level 1. They provide a comprehensive typology for the habitats of Europe and its adjoining seas. This report provides full documentation of EUNIS habitats to level 4 for marine habitats and to level 3 for terrestrial and freshwater habitats. Marine habitats, their descriptions, and the criteria for deriving them, were extensively revised following an expert workshop in Helsinki in July 2004. Terrestrial and freshwater habitats were critically reviewed by us in 2004. Many new definitions were added and most of the existing definitions were revised. A few names were changed. The results of these changes are presented as a set of factsheets for habitats at levels 1 to 4 (marine) and levels 1 to 3 (terrestrial and freshwater), accompanied by a key and a glossary. In an annex, the names and index numbers of all EUNIS habitats are listed, including the higher levels.
