Abstract

In this IMAGINE cookbook n° 3 ‘Assessing detailed GI habitat quality for biodiversity and ecosystem services’ (De Blust and Heremans – this report) useful landscape metrics are proposed and a GI habitat typology and related attributes are described that may be used for an assessment of habitat quality. By avoiding regional nomenclature or unclear definitions, we’ve tried to present a methodology that can be broadly applied, regardless the specific geographical context.
