Details

The main aim of this report is to produce a guide to the habitats, ecological requirements and conservation of British stoneworts. It includes chapters on the structure of stoneworts to help with identification, the critical water quality limits of nitrogen, phosphorus and copper, and examples of practical conservation methods. It is intended for use by anyone who works in conservation or water quality as well as those who manage wetland sites.
