Handbook for Phase 1 habitat surveyThe Phase 1 habitat classification and associated field survey technique provides a relatively rapid system to record semi-natural vegetation and other wildlife habitats. Each habitat type/feature is defined by way of a brief description and is allocated a specific name, an alpha-numeric code, and unique mapping colour. The system has been widely used and continues to act as the standard ‘phase 1’ technique for habitat survey across the UK.

 

The content of the Phase I Field Manual is included in within the main A4 Phase 1 Handbook. Both were published first in 1990 by the Nature Conservancy Council (NCC): later versions, with limited additions, have been produced by JNCC.
