Cabinet of Ministers Regulations No. 213 in Riga in 2007 (March 27. No 21 32 §) rules on the criteria used for evaluating the specially protected species specially protected habitats or damage impacts significance in accordance with issued environmental protection Act 24. the second paragraph of article 1 the Rules lay down the criteria used in evaluating the specially protected species specially protected habitats or damage impacts significance compared to baseline condition (hereinafter criteria). 2. Material adverse change as compared with the baseline condition the species determined by using numerical data, including: 2.1.-individuals of the species of wild animals, plants, fungi and lichen, their number density and inhabited or occupied areas;
2.2. the injury affected some of the individual role of the species in question to conservation of the species and naturally, species sensitivity and frequencies (to evaluate local governments, the public, the European Union in the boreal (Northern) region and the level of the European Union);
2.3. species reproductive or breeding success (according to the information available on the relevant species or populations concerned dynamics and recurrence inherent), its viability;
2.4. the ability of the species in a short time without intervention (with the exception of nature protection measures) to recover after injury to the point that, given the dynamics of the species, reaching about baseline condition better or equivalent level. 3. Material adverse change as compared with the baseline condition habitats are established using quantifiable data, including: 3.1 the role of the area affected by the damage to the Habitat Conservation, and naturally, the sensitivity of Habitat and incidence (it estimates the local government, the State, the European Union, in the boreal (Northern) region and the level of the European Union);
3.2. natural regeneration capacity of the Habitat (in accordance with the dynamics of Habitat-specific species or populations);
3.3. the Habitat capacity in a short time without intervention (with the exception of nature protection measures) to recover after injury to the point that, in view of the dynamics of Habitat reaches about baseline condition better or equivalent level. 4. Damage caused also the adverse effects on human health, are to be classified as significant damage. 5. the material is not considered a relevant 5.1: species or Habitat negative change that according to the information available, are normal and are less than natural fluctuations;
5.2. the negative species or Habitat changes due to natural causes;
5.3. a negative change that occurs by interfering with the management of the territory according to the species and habitats protection plan or specially protected natural areas conservation plan;
5.4. damage, after which the species or Habitat in a short time without interference to their baseline condition or restored to a condition that, in the light of the relevant species or Habitat recovery dynamics, is equivalent to the baseline condition or is better for it.
