NVC / BNVC

BRITISH NATIONAL VEGETATION CLASSIFICATION


BNVC is a system for classifying natural habitats in the UK according to the specific types of vegetation that they contain. Apart from references such as these, this website does not list plants according to this system, and is provided here for reference only. [It would be too big a job to include NVC categories for each plant, but maybe one day when the Author has finished entering all the photographs...]
