ETC/BD Working paper A/2018 : Report on a prioritised list of habitats and emblematic species in the framework of Action 12 of the Nature Action Plan

01 Nov 2018


This study presents illustrative habitats and species in need of spatial connectivity, in support of EU-transboundary protected areas management and in line with Green Infrastructure. Based on sound scientific principles a selection of species and habitats have been made based on their relevance for conservation, their need for an improved spatial connectivity, and which can be illustrative for a conservation approach. Moreover, some examples show how these elements of a green infrastructure can contribute to ecosystem services, in line with the MAES initiative.
