This work was conducted within the framework of the National Vegetation Classification (NVC) in order to assess the applicability of existing NVC categories to the shingle communities and, where appropriate, to extend the NVC by highlighting any new communities identified.
Also provided is a spreadsheet providing a cross-tabulation between the Coastal Vegetation Shingle communities defined in this report and NVC communities, produced as part of a subsequent project in 2010.
