Botanical survey NVC

Rob conducts an NVC survey

Wild Frontier Ecology has a number of capable botanists in the team with a wealth of experience conducting botanical survey of plant communities across the UK. We have worked in a variety of lowland and upland habitats including blanket bog, saltmarsh, woodlands, grasslands, aquatic habitats and heathlands.

Following a Preliminary Ecological Appraisal, further (Phase 2) investigation of habitats may be required. National Vegetation Classification (NVC) is the standard method of assigning plant communities, and in semi-natural areas is important for gaining a proper ecological understanding of the habitat. It can also help determine whether Priority Habitats are present. Determining the correct NVC community is essential for appropriate management. It is a relevant technique for both development sites and sites of nature conservation importance.
