Ecology of the White-clawed Crayfish (Austropotamobius p. pallipes)

This account of the ecology of the white-clawed crayfish was produced as part of Life in UK Rivers – a project to develop methods for conserving the wildlife and habitats of rivers within the Natura 2000 network of protected European sites.

This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Invertebrates, produced by Paul Lee.
