Definition of Favourable Conservation Status for Duke of Burgundy (RP2928)

This document sets out Natural England’s view on the contribution England needs to make to achieve Favourable Conservation Status (FCS) for Duke of Burgundy butterfly Hamearis lucina. The England contribution is defined in terms of three parameters: the natural range and distribution of the species; population of the species; extent of habitat necessary for long-term maintenance of populations.
This section provides the summary definition of the England contribution to FCS. Sections 2 – 6 describe the evidence considered when defining FCS for each of the three parameters. Annex 1 lists the references.
This document does not include any action planning, or describe actions, to achieve FCS where the species is not considered to be in FCS. These will be presented separately, for example within restoration strategies.
