Iulian Petchesi

This document aims at clarifying how the geographical scope of certain species and sub-species is reflected in the EUNIS web application, which provides information on species of European concern. Specifically, it focuses on species and sub-species which are mentioned collectively, e.g. at the genus level, in legal texts (Directives, conventions, agreements) of exclusively European scope, as well as species and sub-species mentioned individually or collectively in legal texts of broader scope than Europe are reflected in EUNIS.
