The exact description and delimitation of habitat types are an important tool and a basic condition for the protection and effective management of the natural environment and biodiversity in Greece. It is also a bounding obligation towards the competent EU bodies. Previously registered habitats (period 1999−2001) concerned in total 237 land areas totaling roughly 2 millions hectares of land. This work was the first and only mapping of habitat types in protected areas, resulting in the production of thematic maps (habitat type maps). Ten years after the first mapping of the habitats falling in special protection areas included in the “Natura 2000” network, these maps need updating with data deriving from field work and the use of recent coloured orthofotos. The overall work will be delivered by the company Cadastre S.A. The Decree sets out the technical specifications for the description, delimitation and updating of land habitat types in Sites of Community Importance (SCI).
