The updated EU Grassland Butterfly Indicator 1990-2020 is the combined population trend of 17 selected grassland species monitored across Europe for a long period of time. The indicator has been calculated from population trends estimated for the whole European region and restricted to the 27 EU Member States. In the last ten years, the indicator shows a linear decline of 32% in the EU27 and 36% in Europe up to 2020 with the last update of the eBMS database.
