EUNIS, European Nature Information System (2005)


The EUNIS Database is the European Nature Information System, developed and managed by the European Topic Centre on Biological Diversity (ETC/BD) for the European Environment Agency (EEA) and the European Environmental Information Observation Network (Eionet) to be used for environmental reporting and for assistance to the NATURA2000 process (EU Birds and Habitats Directives) and coordinated to the related EMERALD Network of the Bern Convention.

EUNIS consists of information on Species, Habitat types and Sites. The information includes:

  • Data on Species, Habitats and Sites compiled in the framework of the NATURA2000 (EU Habitats and Birds Directives), but also data collected by ETC/BD from literature and other sources as reference data.
  • Information on Species, Habitats and Sites taken into account in relevant international conventions.
  • Specific data collected in the framework of the EEA reporting activities, which also constitute a core set of data to be up-dated periodically.
