Welcome to the public area of the IPA database
This database holds information on Important Plant Areas in Europe.
From this page you can search for and print the following information
(in English) on IPAs:
Location dot maps of IPA – individual sites or all the sites in one country
Fact sheets for individual IPA - (with information on their location, the species and habitats within them, the threats to the sites and their management).
Threats to IPAs
Habitats found with in the IPA network by country
Species groups found within the IPA network
Use the left hand menu to select the type of search you wish to
make, select the other variables from the drop-down menus. For an IPA
fact-sheet click on the name of the IPA and then click on ‘map’ to locate.
Currently the database holds information on IPAs in Belarus, the Czech
Republic, Estonia, Poland, Romania, Slovenia and Slovakia. In the next
two years more information will be added about sites in Bulgaria, Croatia,
Macedonia (FYR), Montenegro and the United Kingdom. The IPA database is
set up for use in Europe, but in the future it is intended that it will
be expanded to accommodate data from other parts of the world.
The IPA database is potentially available to any national IPA team who
wish to identify IPA, as a tool to store and display their data. Please
contact Plantlife for further information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
