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.
