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
Additionally the diagram may be used for reference.

Question f02 :   Snow-covered for 8 - 10 months?
   Habitats characterised by species tolerant of snow cover for most of the year are distinguished (path = Yes). Note that snow patch habitats are treated as complex X05 comprising units of E4.1and F2.1.
Yes Factsheet icon [ F2.1 ] No (Question f03 )

Question f03 :   Pine dominated?
   Habitats in the subalpine zone dominated by dwarf needle-leaved trees (primarily Pinus mugo) are separated (path = Yes).
Yes Factsheet icon [ F2.4 ] No (Question f04 )

Question f04 :   Ericaceous and other evergreen vegetation?
   Evergreen vegetation largely dominated by ericoids is separated (path = Yes) from deciduous scrubs developed in areas sheltered by snow from wind and frost. These latter areas are normally characterised by the permanent presence of moving water, allowing turnover of nutrients and preventing accumulation of mor.
