The work in progress about “Geobotanic cartography of the Sites of Community Importance of the Abruzzo region set out of the protected areas” is shown. After a brief summary about the Natura 2000 network in the Abruzzo region, the thematic maps provided are described: Phytoclimate; Land Facets, Actual Vegetation, Potential Vegetation, Habitats of the 43/92 CEE Directive. The study shows an high biodiversity in therms of climate, environment and vegetation in the territory analized. It also permitted to deepen the knowledge of not well known areas and to find new vegetation types.
In the paper some problems about the corrispondence between natural and semi-natural habitats present in the territory and those listed in the Annex II of the 43/92 CEE Directive are presented, toghether with some proposal reguarding with the inserction in the Annex II of particularly important habitats in therms of biogeography and conservation.
