North York Moors National Park upland vegetation survey - report (ENRR245)

The North York Moors holds one of the largest continuous tracts of heather moor in England and Wales and is the most easterly area of moorland in Britain. A comprehensive survey of the upland vegetation communities of the North York Moors National Park was undertaken to provide a database of vegetation information to a common standard and framework for all areas of moorland in the Park. This report summarises the results of the 1998 survey and provides an overview of moorland vegetation and management throughout the North York Moors National Park. It includes a glossary of National Vegetation Classification (NVC) communities recorded during the North York Moors upland habitats survey.
