How can the DLCA be used for biodiversity planning?20 June 2016
There are strong patterns of biodiversity across Devon, which relate very strongly to landscape character. The DLCA provides a useful spatial framework for biodiversity planning because specific habitats and species are often associated with particular landscapes. In addition, Landscape Character Types permit comparison of landscapes with similar characteristics across the county. The DLCA can assist in the design and targeting of habitat creation schemes that enhance the distinctive characteristics of particular landscapes.
