The objective of this study was to compile lists of UK BAP species relevant to each priority habitat; collate and analyse the habitat niche and resource requirements for each species; and to produce guidance for each of the new Biodiversity Integration Groups (established to bring together habitat and associated species interests at an England level) on how species requirements can best be integrated into habitat management.
This is part of our Good Practice Guidance for Habitats and Flora, produced by Richard Jefferson, Dominic Price, Iain Diack, Steve Coates and Andy Mclay.
