Marine Intertidal Phase 1 Species Dataset from the Countryside Council for Wales 1996-2005
This datasets contains species recorded as part of Countryside Council for Wales' (CCW) Phase 1 Intertidal habitat mapping survey covering all of Wales. The Intertidal mapping took place between 1996 and 2005. All work was carried out by an in-house survey team.
Surveys were undertaken to provide an assessment of sites as possible Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) and as a basis for developing sensitivity mapping. These are also used in the production and evaluation of Environmental Impact Assessments (EIA's) and as an integrated information resource for local authorities' structure and development plans on the coast and or the consideration of planning applications.
Species were recorded in one of three ways: in target notes; in species lists for certain (mainly specialised and nationally important) biotopes found on a site; in species lists for the whole site and therefore precision is variable.
