Croatia joined the EU on the 1st July bringing the number of EU Member States to 28 and adding to the EU’s biodiversity. To reflect this, there have been some additions to the annexes of the Habitats Directive with 2 new habitats added to Annex I and 14 species to Annexes II & IV. Further details are given in the latest Natura 2000 newsletter.. Descriptions of the new habitats are included in the latest edition of the Interpretation manual of European Habitats.
