This report gives an overview of the ecohydrological survey of several New Forest SSSI units conducted by JBA on behalf of Natural England in the autumn/winter of 2012. The report outlines the methodology and background information used to support the 23 Ecohydrological Assessment Area reports. These Ecohydrological Assessment Areas were formed of proximal SSSI units with broadly similar ecohydrological mechanisms. The reports outline and discuss the findings of ecological surveys, ecohydrological conceptual models, outline restoration plans and monitoring requirements that have been developed for each assessment area. In general most of the wetlands assessed only require minor restoration work to improve them. This report gives some indication as to the priorities of that work and the priorities for monitoring.
