Vegetation surveys of coastal shingle in Great Britain
Data from two vegetation surveys commissioned by the Nature Conservancy Council in 1987, using NVC methodology. <br>
1) A detailed survey of the whole shingle peninsula of Dungeness, Kent, carried out by Royal Holloway and Bedford New College, London (Ferry, Lodge & Waters 1990)<br> 2) A detailed survey of coastal shingle structures and beaches supporting permanent flora above the strandline (other than Dungeness) in England, Scotland and Wales, carried out by Girton College, Cambridge (Sneddon 1992; Sneddon & Randall 1993)
All major sites containing coastal shingle habitats in Great Britain were covered by this survey
Vegetation was sampled at multiple quadrats within each site; however, for many locations, only a single grid reference is available covering the whole of each site.
NVC quadrat survey, captured into a vespan data format for analysis of biotope types. The vespan files have been converted to an access database by JNCC in 2003.
