Abstract [en]

“Favourable Conservation Status” (FCS) is a central concept in the biodiversity conservation legislation of the European Union (EU). Here, we highlight the importance of incorporating aspects of conservation genetics in interpretation of this concept. Recent documents from the EU Commission indicate that knowledge of conservation genetics has so far been lacking among those who have tried to employ the concept. We think it is crucial that aspects of conservation genetics be incorporated in discussion of this concept and that this be done before the EU Court of Justice takes a position on the legal interpretation of FCS.
