Ecosystems


The two-year assessment covered UK terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems contained within eight collections of "broad habitat" types:

Mountains, moors and heaths Semi-natural grasslands Enclosed farmland Woodland
   
 Freshwater, wetlands and floodplains  Urban  Marine  Coastal margins
