Publications - Species Status Assessment project

 
In the past the Species Status Assessment project assigned conservation status to our flora and fauna using the internationally-approved IUCN Red Data Book criteria and categories.  These reviews were published in a series entitled Species Status.  Some reviews had detailed data sheets, giving biological and other information relevant for conserving each species (for example, the Diptera reviews, Species Status numbers 2 and 3), while others listed the new conservation status assigned to each species, with supporting reasons and evidence for these judgements.

Daguet, C., French, G., Taylor, P., (eds)
The SSA project was established by JNCC in 1999. The project is the means by which the statutory conservation agencies, in partnership with voluntary conservation organisations and leading specialists, assign conservation status to British species and regularly revise previous Red Data Books and National Reviews. By assessing all taxa to the same standards, comparisons between taxa and between geographic areas are made easier. Such an undertaking is not without difficulty: species that have different life spans, different ecological niches, different reproductive strategies etc, do not always lend themselves to easy comparisons.
 
Cheffings, C. and Farrell, L. (Editors)
Produced as part of the JNCC Species Status Assessment project, to assess the status of vascular plants throughout Great Britain. IMPORTANT: the Vascular Plant Red Data List for Great Britain has recently been revised (2006). The amended version has been incoporated into a a single downloadable spreadsheet of conservation designations. This spreadsheet has various types of legislative and status lists and also includes other taxonomic groups.
 
Falk, S.J. and Crossley, R
This present volume deals with the Superfamily Empidoidea as defined by Chvála (1983), which total 673 British species in the latest Diptera check list (Chandler 1998a), now increased to 677 species (as of March 2003; Stubbs (2003)).
 
Falk, S.J. and Chandler, P.
The present volume deals with those Nematocera and Aschiza which were listed but not provided with Data Sheets by Falk (1991). There are sixteen currently recognised families, comprising about 1226 British Isles species, which are considered in this review.
 
Church, J.M., Hodgetts, N.G., Preston, C.D. & Stewart, N.F.
Great Britain is home to 60% of the entire European bryophyte flora. This book gives full species accounts for 176 species with a further 76 listed as 'near threatened'. Already it is contributing to the species conservation programmes co-ordinated by the UK Government's Biodiversity Steering Group.
