UK Habitat Classification (UKHab) has been recently updated to Version 2. UKHab is a relatively
new comprehensive vegetation classification but it is rapidly replacing Phase 1 Habitat Survey
in Preliminary Ecological Assessments. UKHab is an essential tool for assessing habitat
‘Distinctiveness’ as part of the Biodiversity Metric used for Biodiversity Net Gain assessments
for development planning applications. UKHab also has many uses in land management and
conservation projects, as a relatively rapid methodology compared with NVC, and can be paired
with condition assessments and detailed botanical surveys when recording and assessing sites.
