Abstract:
The Digital Map of European Ecological Regions DMEER- delineates and describes ecological distinct areas in Europe, on the basis of updated knowledge of climatic, topographic and geobotanical European data, together with the judgement of a large team of experts from several European nature related Institutions and the WWF. The objective of the map of ecological regions in Europe is to show the extent of areas with relatively homogeneous ecological conditions, within which, comparisons and assessments of different expressions of biodiversity are meaningful.
