Annex I lists today European natural habitat types, including 71 priority (i.e. habitat types in danger of disappearance and whose natural range mainly falls within the territory of the European Union). Annex I was initially based on the hierarchical classification of European habitats developed by the CORINE Biotopes project since that was the only existing classification at European level.

A GIS-based approach has been used to assess existing and potential near-future coastal habitats under different sea-level rise and management scenarios. For six local case studies on the south coast of the UK, difficulties in meeting the requirements of the EC Habitats Directive within individual case study areas were found.
