This Project Report supplements information contained in the R and D Report of NRA R and D Project 291. A Surveyors Handbook is appended to that report. The biological value of river corridor habitats has been identified by literature review following consultation with NRA Conservation Officers and some conservation bodies. The bulk of the literature dealt with individual species and their habitat requirements. Fiftythree species, chosen as a result of the consultation process, were reviewed. The species-orientated information is presented for each species in turn: as a habitat summary listing key requirements; a distribution map; and a short prose review. The habitat-orientated information is presented in this report as a sequential prose review. One-paragraph summaries for each of thirty habitats, selected as ecologically and visually distinct, are provided in the Handbook.
