Habitats

The Summary page includes information from PLANTATT, which should be consulted for further details. Habitat information is given for native species and archaeophytes but only the commonest neophytes.

The preferences of species for Broad Habitats of the UK BAP are listed first. The main habitats of the species are listed; no species is deemed to have a preference for more than four habitats. Minor habitats are ignored.

Below the Broad Habitats are eight diagrams which summarise features of the habitat. Each diagram is a histogram which shows the distribution of values for all British and Irish species in blue and the value for the species in question in red. The eight attributes are:

Light

Moisture

Reaction

Nitrogen

Salt Tolerance

January Mean Temperature

July Mean Temperature

Annual precipitation
