Abstract

The main aim of this study is to provide a scientific review of saltmarsh habitats, based on existing literature and current scientific opinion, in order to inform coastal practitioners involved in the ecological conservation of saltmarshes. It is also designed to provide key information for a wide range of individuals involved in the management and conservation of saltmarshes and associated habitats.

This report concentrates on the structure and function of saltmarshes of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland (with special reference to Northern Ireland). Research has been conducted on saltmarshes in many other areas of the world (e.g. North America, Australia and South Africa), much of which has considerable relevance for the conservation and management of UK saltmarshes.
