This loss, is reflected in assessments of conservation status carried out under the Habitats Directive (EEC, 1992). An analysis of the conservation status of 37 floodplain habitats shows that the vast majority are in either inadequate or bad conservation status (Figure 2.5). Across Europe, only 14% of floodplain habitats and species are in good conservation status, reflecting the high degree of disturbance to the floodplain ecosystems. The disturbances stems from the multitude of human activities, but especially urbanization and agriculture have had a very large impact.
