EUNIS is the European Nature Information System. It contains information on selected species, habitats and sites of importance for protecting Europe's biodiversity. The main content concerns the European Community Birds and Habitats directives as well as the Bern Convention. EUNIS has been developed for the European Environment Agency (EEA) by the European Topic Center for Nature Protection and Biodiversity.
The web application has been developed with European Commission funds (IDA-II programme). EUNIS is a live system, which will change over time with new data. The latest data set covers all the nationally designated areas data delivered by countries as one of the EEA priority data sets.
EUNIS was demonstrated at the Joint CHM meeting between the CBD Secretariat and EEA in Prague in September and at the EEA National Focal Point meeting of EEA in October 2003. The EUNIS web application can be found directly at http://eunis.eea.europa.eu or via EC CHM (the European Community Clearing House Mechanism) at http://biodiversity-chm.eea.europa.eu. You can register comments on EUNIS in the feedback section.
