Northern Atlantic wet heaths with Erica tetralix

NATURA 2000 Code: 4010


North Atlantic and Central European wet heaths and heather-moors with Crossed-leaved heather (Erica tetralix).

Notes on habitat mapping:

The delimitation should be based on the presence of vegetation of the syntaxa given above. The cover of Calluna should not exceed 50% of dwarf shrub cover (if Calluna cover exceeds 50% the vegetation should be considered under  European dry heaths of planar to montane zones [4030]). Smaller areas with divergent vegetation may be included. Coastal vegetation of this type occurring in dune complexes should be considered under  Humid dune slacks of coastal dunes (2190) zu erfassen.
