Integrated Hydrological Units of the United Kingdom: Hydrometric Areas with Coastline

National River Flow Archive
This dataset is part of Integrated Hydrometric Units (IHU) of the UK. Hydrometric Areas are used to organise river flow measurement and hydrometric data collection in the UK.

Countryside Survey 1978 estimates of Broad Habitat areas in Great Britain

R.G.H. Bunce, C.M. Wood, P.A. Henrys, S.M. Smart, D.C. Howard & C.J. Barr
Countryside Survey is a unique study or 'audit' of the natural resources of the UK's countryside. The Survey has been carried out at regular intervals since 1978. The countryside is sampled and surveyed using rigorous scientific methods, allowing us to compare new results with those from previous surveys. In this way we can detect the gradual and subtle changes that occur in the UK's countryside over time. This dataset consists of stock data for habitats...

Operational taxonomic units for soil bacteria in the Wolf and Tamar catchments

R. Griffiths, R.F. Pywell, J. Peyton, P. Nuttall, R. Sarlej & B. Thomson
This dataset contains operational taxonomic units for soil bacteria collected from various land use categories in the Wolf and Tamar catchments in South west England.
