In 2010, the International Year of Biodiversity, the Steering
group of the UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies (CDs)
Research and Training Steering programme1 agreed that the
publication was out-dated, and created an editorial committee to
decide what to focus on in a new updated publication. Some of the
key changes were that Crown Dependencies needed to be included, and
the chapters needed to be authored by specialists from the Overseas
Territories and Crown Dependencies.
The objectives of this publication are:
(1) To provide a ‘snapshot’ of Biodiversity in the UKOTs and
CDs. Note: this is not intended to be exhaustive in the level of
(2) To provide a central access ‘place’ where as many links as
possible to other sources of biodiversity information about the OTs
and CDs can be found.
