The EBONE project developed a method to monitor biodiversity over time in the whole of Europe. In this deliverable, a proof of practice for the developed methodology is presented through an analysis of the data collected. Field data have been collected from a sampling pool of 1km squares throughout Europe and three case study regions outside Europe. The EBONE Habitat Recording Field Protocol allowed the computation of a wide array of indicators from habitat level, pressure and management, life forms and species biodiversity. The protocol ensures the provision of multidimensional and statistically robust estimators of biodiversity for national, environmental strata or any given type of habitats levels. Additionally, it offers new perspectives on both Annex I habitats and semi-natural habitats.
