Abstract/Summary

This is a database of biodiversity metrics calculated for assessing the impacts of atmospheric nitrogen pollution to eight selected sites in the UK. The metrics summarise the predicted changes in floristic species under different nitrogen deposition scenarios. The database forms the UK response to a "Call for Data" from the Coordination Centre for Effects (CCE), the centre responsible for modelling and mapping methodologies for the integrated assessment of European air pollution effects under the Convention on Long Range Transboundary Air Pollution. The "Call" aimed at enableing the calculation of country-specific indicators for assessing changes in biodiversity driven by atmospheric deposition. The ultimate aim of the CCE "call" is to assess the extent to which "no net loss of biodiversity" is achieved under different pollution scenarios using suitable biodiversity endpoints as a measure.
