Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland - physical comparative tables 2004


Spreadsheet showing physical information associated with habitats in the shallow section of the Marine Habitat Classification for Britain and Ireland (published in 2004).

The physical comparative tables enable a rapid comparison of the principal physical characteristics between user-defined sets of biotopes (and other classification units). There are no tables for the deep-sea section added in 2015; therefore they are only relevant to littoral and sublittoral zones - equivalent to version 04.05 of the classification. The tables are provided in the form of a downloadable Excel document.
