Individual Species Reports - 3rd UK Habitats Directive Reporting 2013

The table below provides links to the UK Atlantic and Marine Atlantic biogeographic species reports, as produced for the 2013 UK Habitats Directive Report.  There are links to:

  • the UK reporting information for each species – as submitted to the European Commission;
  • supporting country and offshore information that was used to compile the UK reports – where a cell in the table below is blank it means that the species was not represented or was not native in that country, or that it was a marine species and the report was compiled directly at a UK-level.
