Predicted suitability for EUNIS habitat types

Dataset Creator: Stephan Hennekens
Publication Year: 2016

The modelled suitability for the EUNIS habitat types is an indication of where conditions are favourable for each habitat type based on verified sample plot data (Braun-Blanquet database) and the Maxent software package. The modelled suitability maps may be used as a proxy for the potential geographical distribution of the habitat types in given en ...
