Phase 2 woodland NVC surveys 1988-91 in England and Wales (ENRR008)

Over 600 selected woods were surveyed in different regions of England and Wales. A total of 2146 separate stands occupying 12911 ha were classified using the National Vegetation Classification (NVC). This report gives the results of these surveys and provides updated NVC distribution maps for W9, W16, W8g, W10e and W11b, which were found to have a wider distribution than previously thought. Estimates of the total area of each NVC community based upon these results are given, and a comparison between the NVC and Stand Type classification method is provided.
