Abstract/Summary

In this article we propose that the benefits of recent developments in technology, policy, data management and information exchange for habitat management cannot be fully realised without the development of a new comprehensive classification system for UK habitats. Problems with the current systems are discussed briefly and a solution presented. Support from CIEEM and its membership is critical to the success of such an ambitious project. Only with commitment from the profession to embrace change, facilitate training and enable new systems built on shared data protocols, can any such new classification succeed.
