Habitat types key navigation

You can use the 'key navigation' function to identify a specific habitat by answering a set of questions. Starting from first question to next questions you select one of the possible answers. Here are samples of possible answers:
  • No ( 002 ) - Leading to question named '002'
  • Yes [ G ] - Leading to another questions subset of level G
  • No Factsheet icon[ E6 ] - Links directly to factsheet for E6

Diagram : Diagram icon


Question i :   Aquatic?
   Highly artificial waterbodies, with wholly-constructed beds or heavily contaminated water, and associated conduits and containers (path = Yes) are separated from non-aquatic artificial habitats.
Answers:
Yes Factsheet icon [ This answer goes to category J5 J5 ] No (Question ii )


Question ii :   Waste?
   Artificially constructed habitats comprising waste matter (such as slag heaps, landfill, agricultural waste) are separated (path = Yes). Note that ruderal or pioneer communities invading these habitats are included with E5.1 Anthropogenic herb stands.
Answers:
Yes Factsheet icon [ This answer goes to category J6 J6 ] No (Question iii )


Question iii :   Usage
   Habitats are distinguished according to current or recent usage: extractive industries (quarries, mines etc); transport networks, including paved footpaths, recreation areas (hard surfaces constructed for recreational purposes) and the constructed parts of cemeteries (all including the immediately associated land but excluding the buildings thereon) (path = transport, recreation, cemetery); all other buildings. Note also that ruderal or pioneer communities invading these habitats are included with E5.1 Anthropogenic herb stands, but habitats which originated through man’s activities, but which have reverted to occupation by natural or semi-natural plant and animal communities are categorised with their counterparts elsewhere.
Answers:
extractive industries Factsheet icon [ This answer goes to category J3 J3 ] transport, recreation, cemetery Factsheet icon [ This answer goes to category J4 J4 ] other (Question iv )


Question iv :   Density
   Habitats comprising buildings are differentiated according to their density; medium to high density building as in cities, towns and villages is distinguished from low density (isolated) housing, agricultural, commercial and non-extractive industrial buildings and sites in a rural setting (surrounded by more natural habitats).
