Topic: Weighting species
A quick question as there is a very short turn around on this.
Has anyone got any experience of, or references to paper/work which weights species according to their designation when mapping for the purpose of assessing priority areas.
I reaslise there are a whole host of other issues involved with the process but for now i am just interested in whether or not there are existing weighting methodologies. To date i have the Nottingham LWS selection guidance which references weighting and a paper from some US work assessing priority areas for breeding birds.
Thanks in advance!
