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 g33 :   Dominant vegetation type
   The dominant vegetation type separates three categories of these miscellaneous woodlands: trees under 5 m height (including young stages of forest re-growth or early colonisation by tree species, trees planted for early whole tree harvesting, such as Christmas trees, and coppice, where tree species are artificially maintained in the shrub phase); areas normally part of the forest area but very recently clear-felled and not yet re-stocked and with no succession to weedy vegetation or temporarily unstocked due to natural causes such as wind-throw, (path = no trees); or trees over 5 m height.
Answers:
trees under 5 m height (Question g34 ) trees over 5 m height (Question g35 ) no trees Factsheet icon [ G5.8 ]


Question g34 :   Heavily managed or planted?
   Young plantations and woodlands maintained in the young stage through coppicing are separated (path = Yes) from stands of young trees arising from natural colonisation or forest regrowth.
Answers:
Yes Factsheet icon [ G5.7 ] No Factsheet icon [ G5.6 ]


Question g35 :   Woodland width
   More or less continuous lines of trees and linear plantations comprising one to three distinct lines of trees, such as windbreaks and avenues, are separated from other small, intensively managed woods, small woods strongly influenced by anthropogenic activities and small plantations. Small woodlands are those up to about 0.5 ha in extent. Tree cover may often comprise completely or partially non-native species.
Answers:
linear Factsheet icon [ G5.1 ] other (Question g36 )


Question g36 :   Dominant tree type
   Small anthropogenic woods and small plantations (less than about 0.5 ha in extent) are characterised by the dominant tree types, which may be mixtures of species within the categories broadleaved deciduous; broadleaved evergreen; coniferous; and mixed broadleaved and coniferous. Small natural and semi-natural woodlands are characterised with their larger counterparts in G1 – G4. Note that broadleaved woodland is defined as wooded land on which more than 75% of the tree crown cover consists of broadleaved species and that coniferous woodland is defined as wooded land on which more than 75% of the tree crown cover consists of coniferous species (based on FAO definition). Mixed woodland is defined as wooded land on which neither coniferous, nor broadleaved species account for more than 75% of the crown cover.
