Description
Building on the work of Wolseley & James (1991) and Fletcher (2001a), a maritime rock and coastal slope lichen index has been developed (Edwards & Wolseley, in prep) which covers coastal hard rocks from intertidal rocks to salt-spray limits (potentially over 1km on very exposed coasts) and associated grassland habitats. For coastal heathland, use the Heathland, Moorland & Coastal Heath Index. Regionally restricted communities of particular interest are the Sclerophytetum circumscriptae of dry underhangs in SW England and SW Wales, and the Lobarion community (normally found in woodland) occurring on sheltered basic or base-enriched rocks in western Scotland and very rarely in England and Wales. Good examples of these communities in particular should be represented in the SSSI series.
