Two models, DEMNAT and SMART/MOVE, are in use in the Netherlands to evaluate the effects of changes in environmental factors on the vegetation. Whereas DEMNAT focuses mainly on changes in groundwater dynamics in moist and wet ecosystems, SMART/MOVE has been developed to evaluate the combined effects of acidification, lowering of the groundwater and eutrophication in all ecosystems. There is a large overlap in the two models. One of the ways to bring these models more in tune with each other is to use the same basic data. This was the reasoning behind the creation of a common file with vegetation relevees to be used both to revise the classification of ecological species groups (defined as species with common environmental preferences) and to ascertain the MOVE responses
