The aim of this work was to generate a rationalised list of benthic habitats which represents the minimum number of habitats for which we require information to complete the assessments and reports required under different obligations. The resultant list details 76 habitats, which can be used as the main reference list of habitats for monitoring, assessment and reporting purposes by the Statutory Nature Conservation Bodies (SNCBs) and other nature conservation agencies as required.
