The Environment Agency is the lead partner for protection and positive management actions, identified through the United Kingdom Biodiversity Group within the Species Action Plan (SAP), for triangular club-rush Scirpus triqueter. The rarity and vulnerability of triangular club-rush has led to detailed research on the existing native populations in Ireland and England. This Summary outlines the approach and findings of this work, commissioned by the Environment Agency in collaboration with English Nature, providing a case study that may have a broader application for Environment Agency staff dealing with the management of rare and endangered species.
