Abstract

The main objective of the workshop was to analyse and discuss the possibilities for mapping European grassland types or ecosystems. Thus the workshop forms part of the continuation of the European Collaborative Programme into application studies on general landscape ecological mapping by remotely sensed data and GIS. It was recognised that it is impossible to draw sharp distinctions between grassland, agricultural land and shrub where grass is a major constituent. The need for, and production of, a European grassland map was discussed.
