Biotope and Habitat Types in the Project Area

Within the framework of the LIFE project, the biotope and habitat types of the project area were mapped in the summer of 2006.

A total of 47 habitat types were identified. The table below shows the main 10 groups.

Overview Map – Distribution of the main habitat groups in the LIFE project area

9 habitat types were identified in the LIFE project area:

3130 Oligotrophic to mesotrophic standing waters with vegetation of the Littorelletea uniflorea and/or of the Isoëto-Nanojuncetea
3160 Natural dystrophic lakes and ponds
4010 Northern Atlantic wet heaths with Erica tetralix
4030 European dry heaths
5130 Juniperus communis formations on heaths or calcareous grasslands
7140 Transition mires and quaking bogs
7150 Depressions on peat substrates of the Rhynchosporion
9190 Old acidophilous oak woods with Quercus robur on sandy plains
91D0* Bog woodland


Approximately 68% of the LIFE project area consists of habitat types under the Habitats Directive, a total of 395.84 hectares. Compared to the national level, this is above average. The area balance for the three classes of conservation,

A – very good conservation status
B – good conservation status
C – medium to poor conservation status

makes it obvious that on the whole the conservation status of the majority of habitat types under the Habitats Directive is currently medium to poor. Maintenance and development measures are necessary to restore a good conservation status.
