LIST OF PLANT AND ANIMAL SPECIES RECORDED IN THE LINEAR PARK

BHTA maintains this list on behalf of the Friends of the Linear Park.

The original list was compiled by EMEC during the survey done for the management plan in 2001.

Since then the Friends of the Linear Park has taken over supervision of the Linear Park and has organised periodic surveys. Additional species that have been recorded by them are shown in different colours:

For the period 2001 to January 2004 they are shown in orange.

Species added as a result of observations from October 2004 to summer 2005 are shown in green.

Species added between 2005 and 2010 are in blue.

Species added between 2010 and 2014 shown in purple.
