Literature review of European conservation planning studies

The data table uploaded here contains reviewed literature as part of the manuscript "An assessment of the state of conservation planning in Europe” by Jung et al. that is currently in Review. In this work we reviewed all available scientific literature broadly dealing with conservation planning in various facets and across realms (terrestrial, freshwater, marine). The database provided here thus provides a comprehensive starting point of all scientific conservation planning studies conducted in Europe up until mid 2023.

The dataset is derived from a Scopus literature query conducted on the 23th of September 2022, which resulted in an initial 1459 studies which were further refined and supplemented by evidence known to the authors.
