Guidelines for the Selection of biological SSSIs. Part 2: Detailed guidelines for habitats and species groups
The statutory nature conservation agencies have a duty under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, as amended, to notify any area of land which in their opinion is 'of special interest by reason of any of its flora, fauna, or geological or physiographical features'. Such areas are known as Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs).
This chapter covers fen habitats. Note that this is the original version, created in 1989, and is under revision.
