HABREF repository

In order to facilitate data management on natural habitats and vegetation in information systems on nature, PatriNat (OFB-CNRS-MNHN) makes the national habitats repository (HabRef) available in computerised form. Each typology contained in HabRef is also downloadable separately, as is each of the correspondence tables.

downloading HabRef

HABREF contains the titles, codes and unique identifiers (CD_HAB) of the units of each typology, as well as additional information provided by reference documents, such as descriptions. This repository also contains the presence status of each unit in the French territories, the species that are linked to them, and the correspondences between typologies. HABREF is downloadable as a Zip file.
