Abstract

This report contains the definitions for each of the terrestrial and freshwater types of the UK BAP Broad Habitat classifications. The definitions given are based upon the descriptions agreed by the UK Biodiversity Group and published in volume two of the second tranche of action plans (UK Biodiversity Group 1998b).

In addition to the definitions, annex 1 of this report contains tables which show the correspondence between these broad habitat types and a number of other standard habitat classifications, and select lists of habitats of conservation interest commonly used in the UK for collecting and reporting data.
