Reports and publications based on RHS.
Below are a series of reports and publications related to the River Habitat Survey.
The first 2 reports provide examples of applications of RHS towards catchment management and species surveys.
The next 2 publications give examples on how RHS and other datasets might be used by conservation organisations to investigate the links between pressures, habitats and pressures and develop habitat management tools.
The following 2 publications are examples of the application of RHS towards describing habitats for species.
The last report is a survey methodology developed to complement the RHS.
