Calcareous grassland fidelity score A measure of how strongly species are associated with calcareous (chalk and limestone) grassland habitats. quality index
calcareous substrates Soils that are mostly or partly composed of calcium carbonate. They can be split into chalk and limestone. resource
cambial layer The layer directly beneath bark that transfers food within the trees. resource
cambial layer submerged Species associated with submerged trunks and branches, also classed as coarse woody debris in the wetland classification resource
canopy Species that live within the leaf canopy of a tree or shrub. resource
carrion Species that are associated only with carrion (as opposed to both dung and carrion). resource

chalk A fine white limestone rock. Soils are soft, often mixed with sand. resource
clay A fine-grained soil that tends to retain water. resource
coarse woody debris Coarse woody debris (CWD) is a term for fallen dead trees and large branches lodged in water courses and saturated with water. They can be fully or partially submerged and can be highly mobile, but can also form significant log jams. resource
Coarse woody debris fidelity score A measure of how strongly species are associated with coarse woody debris. quality index
coastal A biotope that includes all habitats affected by the tides next to the shorelines, namely beaches, rocky shores and saltmarsh. It also includes coastal habitats that are not wetlands, i.e. not directly affected by the tide (e.g. dunes, cliff tops). broad biotope
