Managing for species: Integrating the needs of England’s priority species into habitat management (NERR024)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

The review of the UK BAP priority list in 2007 has generated a large increase in the number of habitats and species requiring action. New approaches to BAP delivery across the UK are placing greater emphasis on achieving our biodiversity targets through habitat-based delivery.

The objective of this study was to compile lists of UK BAP species relevant to each priority habitat; collate and analyse the habitat niche and resource requirements for each species; and to produce guidance for each of the new Biodiversity Integration Groups (established to bring together habitat and associated species interests at an England level) on how species requirements can best be integrated into habitat management.

For each Biodiversity Integration Group (BIG), the associated UK BAP species were analysed further in Excel spreadsheets.
