The EC Habitats Directive

Council Directive 92/43/EEC of 21 May 1992 on the Conservation of Natural Habitats of Wild Fauna and Flora, the European Community Habitats Directive, aims to contribute to the protection of biodiversity through the conservation of habitats and wild fauna and flora within EC countries. Under the Directive a network of protected habitats is being created through the designation of Special Areas of Conservation. The network will include the habitats of species listed in Annex II of the Directive. Annex IV (b) designates plant species in need of strict protection and Annex V lists plant species whose taking in the wild and exploitation may be subject to management measures. Macaronesian succulent plant species protected by the Habitats Directive are listed in Table 2.3.
