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

Question g23 :   Highly artificial?
   Highly artificial mixed broadleaved deciduous and coniferous forests (often of exotic species and of uniform age and structure), completely dependent on man’s operations and with impoverished associated communities (path = Yes) are separated from less highly managed habitats.
Answers:
Yes Factsheet icon [ G4.F ] No (Question g24 )


Question g24 :   Waterlogged?
   Habitats which are waterlogged (permanently wet, with the water table at or close to the surface) are separated (path = Yes) from those with other hydrological regimes.
Answers:
Yes Factsheet icon [ G4.1 ] No (Question g25 )


Question g25 :   Distribution
   Coniferous woodland characteristic of the Boreal zone with an admixture of birch; or of the Boreo-nemoral zone with an admixture of other deciduous species (usually oaks); are separated from other mixed woodlands.
Answers:
Boreal Factsheet icon [ G4.2 ] Boreo-nemoral Factsheet icon [ G4.3 ] other (Question g26 )


Question g26 :   Species composition
   The dominant species or species type separates three categories of mixed woodlands: those including broadleaved evergreens; those including Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris); and those where the species composition comprises other species.
Answers:
including broadleaved evergreens (Question g27 ) including Scots pine (Question g28 ) other (Question g30 )


Question g27 :   Coniferous element
   Mixed woodland habitats including broadleaved evergreen species are separated according to the main coniferous species present: with cypresses and yews (Cupressaceae or Taxaceae); with mixed pines other than Black pine (Pinus nigra); and those including Black pine (Pinus nigra).
Answers:
Cupressaceae or Taxaceae Factsheet icon [ G4.A ] Black pine (Pinus nigra) Factsheet icon [ G4.D ] pines other than Black pine Factsheet icon [ G4.E ]


Question g28 :   Deciduous element
   Mixed woodland habitats including Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) are separated according to the main deciduous species present: those with oaks; those with beech; and those with birch.
Answers:
with birch Factsheet icon [ G4.4 ] with beech Factsheet icon [ G4.5 ] with oak (Question g29 )


Question g29 :   Thermophilous?
   Woodland habitats characterised by a mixture of Scots pine and thermophilous oak species are separated (path = Yes).
Answers:
No Factsheet icon [ G4.7 ] Yes Factsheet icon [ G4.C ]


Question g30 :   With Cupressaceae or Taxaceae?
   Habitats characterised by a mixture of deciduous tree species and cypresses or yews (Cupressaceae or Taxaceae) are distinguished (path = Yes).
Answers:
Yes Factsheet icon [ G4.9 ] No (Question g31 )


Question g31 :   Thermophilous?
   Habitats characterised by a mixture of pines, juniper and thermophilous oak species are separated (path = Yes).
Answers:
Yes Factsheet icon [ G4.B ] No (Question g32 )


Question g32 :   With only beech and fir or spruce?
   Other mixed coniferous and deciduous woodland habitats are separated according to their species composition: those with only beech and fir or spruce are separated (path = Yes) from those with combinations of the deciduous species birch, aspen or rowan and occasionally some beech together with fir, spruce or pine.
