The Wetlands ecosystems in MAES nomenclature

This document provides a comprehensive list of the wetland ecosystem classes that SWOS is proposing to be integrated in the MAES nomenclature along with application guidelines and mapping conventions. Cross walks between the MAES wetland classes with the Ramsar types, EUNIS and CLC classes are provided to ensure a user friendly shift amongst each other as well as for documentation needs. Important to note that the list of the Ramsar types, as provided by the Ramsar Convention, serves as the basic background context for considering specific areas as wetland ecosystems.
