how a small addition to an existing PA network could have disproportionate benefits for species conservation.
NotesThe modelled species distributions were derived from raw data provided by the relevant national recording schemes and societies as part of the work by Pearce-Higgins et al. (2017). Specific thanks go to Chris Preston and Oli Pescott (British Bryological Society), Mark Telfer (Ground Beetle Recording Scheme), Tony Barber (British Myriapod & Isopod Group (Centipede Recording Scheme), John Kramer and Alan Stubbs (Cranefly Recording Scheme), Stuart Ball, Roger Morris, Joan Childs and Ellie Rotheray (Hoverfly Recording Scheme), Keith Alexander (Soldier Beetles, Jewel Beetles and Glow-worms Recording Scheme), Kevin Walker (Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI), Richard Fox (Butterfly Conservation), Peter G. Sutton (Orthoptera and Allied Insects Recording Scheme of Britain and Ireland), Tom August (NERC Centre for Ecology & Hydrology) and Peter Harvey (Spider Recording Scheme). We also gratefully acknowledge the efforts made by the many volunteer recorders who have provided data to these schemes, such a project would not be possible without their contributions. This project was funded by Natural England and CEC was supported by the Natural Environment Research Council (grant NE/R012164/1).
