UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies:

2011 Biodiversity Snapshot

Front cover of UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies: 2011 Biodiversity snapshot

 

In 1999 JNCC published a review of biodiversity in the UK Overseas Territories. Since then, a considerable amount of work has been carried out on the ground to conserve biodiversity in these Territories. The UK Government has also published its United Kingdom Overseas Territories Biodiversity Strategy and the Overseas Territories White Paper  which identify strategic biodiversity and environmental priorities for these areas.

 

The UK Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies: 2011 Biodiversity Snapshot  provides a timely update to the 1999 publication. Edited by Tara Pelembe and Gillian Cooper, each chapter is authored by an individual or group from each of the Overseas Territories or Crown Dependencies, and gives a snapshot of its biodiversity and conservation. 

 

As the quantity and level of information provided by authors varies from chapter to chapter, a summary section has been created for each, so that cross-island comparisons can be made. Additional information has been included in the appendices (also available online) and can be used as a foundation for further scientific analysis or research.

 

The publication provides central access to links on other sources of biodiversity information relating to the Overseas Territories and Crown Dependencies.
