This publication sets out a system for making detailed description of Mediterranean wetland habitats depending whether they possess certain characteristics linked to a set of criteria. This habitat description system can be used as a framework for a wide scale inventory of Mediterranean wetlands and is intended to describe ecological units that have certain homogeneous natural characteristics. It is based on the well documented and comprehensive system by Cowardin et al (1979) for the ‘National Wetland inventory of the United States of America’.
