Title: Freshwater Tamar : first annual review
Author: Environment Agency South West Region
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: tamar annual review 2000
This review is the combined Annual Review of the Tamar Estuary and Freshwater Tamar Action Plans. It describes the progress that has been made since. The area includes a diverse range of landscapes and wildlife habitats, from the Culm measures and the slopes of Dartmoor and Bodmin Moor to the extensive creeks and mudflats of the river estuaries and rolling hills supporting relatively intensive agriculture. This contrasts with Plymouth, a maritime city with a population of over 250,000. The upper stretch is essentially rural in character, ranging from Culm grassland, open moorland to rolling hills intersected by steep sided valleys. There is no heavy industry here, but historically there was extensive mining activity, especially in a band running roughly from Bodmin Moor to Gunnislake and Tavistock, which has left its own legacy of abandoned mines and workings.
