An assessment of the efficiency of capture techniques and the value of different habitats for the great crested newt (ENRR576)

This report presents the results of a study undertaken on behalf of English Nature to evaluate the efficiency of capture techniques and the value of different habitats for great crested newts Triturus cristatus. Licence return data were analysed in an attempt to assess the effectiveness of various different elements of the measures used to mitigate the effects of developments on newts. A further aim of the project was to assess the value of different habitats for newts by investigating the numbers captured in a variety of types of land across England.
