The Red List of all of Finland’s terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems was first published in Finnish in December 2018. The methodology applied in Finland – the IUCN Red List of Ecosystems Categories and Criteria – is new, but gradually becoming the common standard for assessing the threat status of ecosystems and habitats.
To pave the way for the further expansion of RLEs, Finland now provides a set of assessment examples in addition to the RLE results. Sharing concrete assessment examples in English enhances the harmonization of RLEs across the countries.
