*Substratum is the correct scientific term. Substrate is more commonly used in conversation and in popular literature, and elsewhere in this document, but scientifically, ‘substrate’ refers to the chemical nature of the nutrient source rather than to the nature of the physical support.

Ecosystem descriptors

It is recommended that the interpretation given to the descriptors and qualifiers be that of the NCC Ecosystem Codes. Thus ‘mixed woodland’ should not be used as meaning a mixture of various broadleaf trees, or of broadleaf with one or two isolated conifers, but specifically a mix of broadleaf and conifer trees when either constitutes at least 10% of the canopy.

The term ‘plantation’ should be used for a woodland of obviously planted trees. The term ‘parkland’ can be applied to planted landscapes with tree cover less than about 30%, even though there is no associated mansion.

The amount of space available in the substrate or ecosystem fields is such that abbreviations should not be required when entering data in the fields designed to the latest BMSFRD format. If, however, abbreviations are entered some explanation should be passed on to the Database Co-ordinator. A list of NCC Ecosystem Codes is provided in Appendix 3.
