English Nature commissioned this independent review of the treatment of characteristic urban habitats and species in the UKBAP. The aim of the study is to improve their representation by identifying the most obvious and significant omissions. In particular, the study has involved a review of available literature and data on urban nature conservation in the UK, development of a typology for urban habitats, identification of Species of Conservation Concern (SoCCs) associated with urban habitats, an assessment of the treatment of urban species in Local Biodiversity Actions Plans (LBAPs), and identification of potential new UKBAP Priority Habitats and Priority Species associated with urban habitats.
