Commission of the European Communities.(1991). CORINE biotopes manual. Habitats of the European Community. Luxembourg. p 308.
The present typological list of the European habitats was developed within the context of the Community's CORINE biotopes project information and mapping system, as a tool for the description of sites of importance for nature conservation in Europe.
The primary objective of the list is to identify all major communities whose presence contributes to the conservation significance of a site It has been endeavoured to strike a balance between the need to emphasize the extremely interesting but rare natural or near-natural communities and the widespread semi-natural ones, which result from a long history of extensive use by man.
