To summarise currently available information on conservation requirements of the following three freshwater habitats (from Annex 2 of the EC Habitats Directive): l. Oligotrophic waters containing very few minerals of Atlantic sandy plains with amphibious vegetation: Lobelia, Littorella and Isoetes 2. Oligotrophic to mesotrophic standing waters of plains to subalpine levels of the Continental and Alpine Region and mountain areas of other regions with amphibious vegetation belonging to Littorelletae wziflorae and/or Isoeto-Nanojuncetea 3. Dystrophic lakes • To define conservation objectives based on the requirements of the habitat, outlining: 1. Favourable conditions 2. Attributes (physical, chemical and biological parameters that define favourable condition) 3. Targets (Acceptable range for each attribute) • To assess current monitoring of listed attributes and targets • To identify modifications, or additions, to existing baseline monitoring.
