Topic: UK BAP Priority Habitats Defintiions and rule bases

We are currently carrying out a review of definitions and rule bases for Natural England on selected BAP Priority Habitats.

As part of these processes we would like to hear of local projects and activities from within LRCs / ALERC members. The included BAP PHs are: Lowland Calcareous Grassland, Lowland Dry Acid Grassland, Lowland Meadows, Purple Moor Grass and Rush Pastures, Upland Hay Meadows, Calaminarian Grasslands, Lowland Heathland, Blanket Bog, Inland Rock Outcrop and Scree Habitats, Mountain Heaths and Willow Scrub, Upland Calcareous Grassland, Upland Flushes, Fens and Swamps, Upland Heathland, Coastal and Floodplain Grazing Marsh, Lowland Fens and Lowland Raised Bog.

The sorts of things it would be useful to hear of:

Q1 What recent and current work have you been doing on BAP PH definitions and rule bases?

Q2. What recent or current work on correspondence matrices to translate between differing habitat classifications?

Q3. Are there any recent / current mapping programmes for the specific BAP PH
