Assigning Biotopes to Seasearch Data 2007

Abstract

Seasearch is providing the main source of volunteer data on UK marine species and habitats. JNCC wishes to make better use of the data, especially for habitat mapping, by ensuring that JNCC biotopes are assigned to suitable Seasearch data. This comprised 356 Seasearch Survey records in 2006, but has risen in 2007. The original intention was that the Biotope Key would be prepared to enable those dealing with the Seasearch data to assign biotopes in future, and that a significant number of Survey forms would have been biotope coded and entered into the Marine Recorder database by the end of this contract.
