|Abstract: ||The Habitats Directive establishes that Member States must apply the necessary measures to
maintain and/or restore a favourable conservation status for habitat types & species of community
interest. To monitoring this process, Article 17 requires Member States to report on a regular basis,
to the European Commission and to all European citizens, on the progress of implementing this
Therefore, every six years, all countries must produce a monitoring report assessing on species and
habitats conservation status throughout their territory, both in and outside the Natura 2000 network.
In Portugal, three national reports under Article 17 have been completed for the periods 2001-2006,
2007-2012 and 2013-2018. These reports include, for each biogeographic region, an assessment of
the conservation status of each target value. For habitats, this goal was achieved analysing
separately a set of specific parameters: Range, Area, Structure/Function and Future Perspectives.
In this conference we will present the main results of the 2013-2018 assessment for habitats of
Community interest - done in a partnership between ICNF and PHYTOS, with the collaboration of
an important set of national experts. We will also present the main progresses achieved and the
main differences between 2001 and 2018. These results highlight  the lack of data in habitat
distribution outside the Natura 2000 Network;  the continuous degradation of several habitats,
including coastal habitats, water-plane habitats and forest habitats;  as well as changes in threats
