Good afternoon,

I am wondering whether I can find information anywhere about the criteria used for the establishment of protected areas (marine and terrestrial) in Europe, so as to find out whether genetics as a tool has been used in protected area design.
Would anyone know if a database exists that contains such information, or have other suggestions where I might find it?

Many thanks in advance and kind regards,

Dear Ms. Katharina F.,

Thank you for contacting the European Environment Agency (EEA).

You may find information on the Natura 2000 protected areas network, both for marine and terrestrial environments, at the following links:

Natura 2000 in the Marine Environment: https://ec.europa.eu/[…]/index_en.htm

Natura 2000 - Environment: https://ec.europa.eu/[…]/index_en.htm

These links contain guidance documents and explanation on the establishment of the Natura 2000 sites.

We hope that this may be useful for you.

With kind regards,
EEA Enquiry Service
