UK ecological status map

R. Dyer & T. Oliver
A spatial indicator of ecological status for valuation of biodiversity across the UK, based on species occurrence records was developed. UK species occurrence data were collated from the Biological Records Centre (BRC). The mean ecological status was calculated across all taxonomic groups for the 2000 to 2013 time period, relative to the species richness maximums from the 1970-1990 time period, showing differences as colours.

Vegetation survey data from Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog Forest

A. Sowerby & B.A. Emmett

In each year, measurements were taken at a...

Soil respiration data from Climoor fieldsite in Clocaenog Forest

A. Sowerby & B.A. Emmett
