Problems in drawing up management plan for Sites of Community Importance (SCIs): Natura 2000 network in Calabria (S Italy). The present study summarises the experience in management plans (MP) elaboration of 96 SACs (Special Areas of Conservation) in Calabria (S Italy). Their elaboration has been driven by the province administrations that propose also the direct managers. One of the main difficulties is related to the lack of naturalistic data. A gap analysis about knowledge of rare species, floristic data and vegetation in SACs is presented. Cartographic interpretation of the environmental units, applying different vegetation and habitat classification systems has been adopted having in mind the limits of each method. Different approaches in support of the decision making process of dynamic territorial governance based on the monitoring are discussed.
