EUROPEAN INITIATIVES

The Irish Vegetation Database (NVD) is listed in the Global Index of Vegetation-Plot Databases (GIVD)

The NVD is also part of the European Vegetation Archive (EVA) through which, under the data sharing agreement, we provide Irish vegetation data to European-level vegetation classification initiatives. This ensures that European classifications take into account the subtleties of regional data, and that any classifications developed are more likely to be suitable for use in Ireland.

Publicly funded data within the NVD are also being made available for vegetation projects on a European scale, other than classification. This allows us to become part of a wider Europe and to contribute to, and benefit from, shared knowledge and expertise.

Europe-wide projects that the NVD has contributed to so far (with data restrictions) are listed below:
