Please note that this publication incorporates the contents of the field manual, which can also be bought separately.
Provides information on this standardised system for surveying, classifying and mapping wildlife habitats including urban areas.
Those in possession of the original edition may wish to know whether they should purchase the reprint. There are minor amendments but it is not a revised edition. JNCC have informed us "that the new edition brings customers fully up-to-date with the Phase 1 technique and associated materials, but no changes have been made to the classification itself, including the alpha-numeric coding scheme, habitat descriptions and colour mapping scheme."
Appendix 8 of the handbook has been superseded by an improved and substantially expanded online product. Details of the correspondences between Phase 1 types and other mainstream classification systems are contained in an interactive spreadsheet, which can be downloaded from http://www.jncc.gov.uk/page-4258. Also available from this web page is an electronic Phase 1 colour palette style file that can be applied to ArcGIS shapefiles.
