damp The soil water level is higher than in dry soils and will express around the soil surface for much of the time but never rises higher. Soil composition will greatly influence this, as will spring lines, position on slopes, aspect, and degrees of shading. resource
DD Data deficient in Great Britain status
DD (European) Data deficient in Europe status
DD (Global) Data deficient globally status
dead trunks & branches Species associated with dead trunks & branches within the bark and sapwood decay resource resource
decaying wood Wood-decay (saproxylic) species are associated with the decomposition of woody tissues and their agents, notably fungi, or are predators of other saproxylic species. habitat
decaying wood Decay specifically within a tree's heartwood, which may be subdivided into red-rot or white-rot fungi, having a strong impact on the species composition of the associated invertebrates. resource
deep litter Large accumulations of plant litter, such as sedge and grass litter, that are built up into mats and layers, often tens of centimetres deep. This tends to accumulate into dense mats, the lower sections being very damp. resource
deep water Water within a lake of more than a few metres deep that is free of aquatic plant growth. resource
drawdown zone: mud/shallow litter A resource for invertebrate species associated with exposed silt in areas of land inundated by water in the winter and early spring which dry in the summer. resource
dry The soil water level is well below the surface layer. The soil composition influences this as well, so the matrix may be particularly free-draining. resource
dry wood mould Dry, fibrous wood mould. resource
dung Species that are associated only with dung (as opposed to both dung and carrion). They may be directly feeding on the dung or be dung predators. resource
dung & carrion Vertebrate waste products and dead bodies within the landscape, ranging in size from small mammals/frogs/song birds up to large grazing animals. habitat
