Dickie, I., Royle, D. & Anderson, S.
This report was commissioned to help JNCC better understand the ongoing development of Integrated Reporting , with a particular focus on where it can improve the accounting for, and management of, Natural Capital by business. The project was mainly concerned with the management of Natural Capital in the UK, but has also drawn on expertise and evidence from other countries where it has been deemed relevant to UK operations.
 
Alexander, D., Coates, D.A., Herbert, R.J.H. & Crowley, S.J.
This project is focused on producing a series of Conceptual Ecological Models (CEMs) for the marine habitat ‘Shallow Sublittoral Mixed Sediments’.
 
Howard, B., Neumann, J. & O’Riodan, R.
JNCC commissioned the Ecosystems Knowledge Network to develop an information resource on the wide range of analytical tools focused on the needs of potential users. The aim of this ‘Tool Assessor’ is to aid the practical application of the natural capital, green infrastructure and ecosystem service concepts in day-to-day land-use decision-making in the UK.

The aim of this report is to determine whether the inshore areas of Belfast Lough, or a part thereof, meet the UK SPA Selection Guidelines in respect of the numbers of inshore waterbirds outside the breeding season (Stroud et al 2001).
 
O'Connor, J.
JNCC and Marine Scotland Science (MSS) undertook an offshore seabed survey of East of Gannet and Montrose Fields and Norwegian Boundary Sediment Plain Scottish Nature Conservation Marine Protected Areas (NCMPAs) on the Marine Research Vessel Scotia (survey code 1515S) from 19 October 2015 to 2 November 2015.
 
Laurence Jones et al
This report describes the development of a decision framework to provide a means of attributing nitrogen deposition as a threat to, or cause of, unfavourable habitat condition on protected sites.
 
Bunch, N., Cheffings C. & Robinson, A.
This report is designed to be a resource to help site managers make decisions on whether and how to treat Vaccinium myrtillus on their land if infected with one of three Phytophthora species. It takes the form a framework containing lists of relevant issues that should be considered in the decision-making process. Current thinking around these issues and their relevance to Phytophthora management is summarised to contribute towards making the most effective decisions for the circumstances.
 
O'Connor, J.
Solan Bank Reef SCI is located approximately 50km north of Cape Wrath on the Scottish mainland. The site represents the Annex I reef sub-types ‘bedrock’ and ‘stony’ reef (JNCC 2012).
 
Lawson, J., Kober, K., Win, I., Allcock, Z., Black, J., Reid, J.B., Way, L. & O’Brien, S.H.
The aim of this report is to provide Natural England and Natural Resources Wales with the evidence needed to form its advice to Government on possible additional features or updates for the SPA classified in Liverpool Bay/Bae Lerpwl. The report presents the numbers of wintering aggregations of inshore waterbirds and indicates if species exceed their respective population thresholds under the UK SPA Selection Guidelines within the area of search.
 
Lawson J., Kober, K., Win, I., Allcock, Z., Black, J., Reid, J.B., Way, L. & O’Brien, S.H.
This report collates five winter seasons of aerial survey data (2003/04, 2004/05, 2005/06, 2006/07, 2007/08) were analysed using distance sampling methods. The means of the highest counts from each winter (mean of peak) were used to define the size of the population of each species in the Outer Thames Estuary, as is standard practice deriving from the Ramsar convention. The numbers of little gull and great cormorant were assessed against the UK SPA selection guideline thresholds (Stroud et al 2001).
