Report 507
Developing an interim technical definition for Coral Gardens specific for UK waters and its subsequent application to verify suspected records
(2014)
Henry, L.A. & Roberts, J.M.
A wealth of new information from recent research initiatives points to the need to better refine the definition of Coral Gardens habitat, and map the occurrences of Coral Gardens in UK waters. This study set out to use information on key species components of Coral Gardens to refine the definition of the feature for UK waters and to verify suspected records of the habitat.
 

Introduction

 

The results from this study will be used to assist in the identification of Marine Protected Areas in UK waters for Coral Gardens, as well as in the development of further work areas concerning the conservation of habitats in UK waters.
