  1. Introduction. Calcareous grasslands are sites of conservation importance, both in the UK and Europe, that support a diverse and often specialised flora and fauna, including many rare or threatened species (BUTT, , JNCC, , McLean, , Rodwell, , WallisDeVries et al., ).Since the Second World War agricultural intensification and the decline of traditional grazing management.   Introduction. Permanent grasslands, often of high conservation value, have declined considerably in extent across Europe (Pärtel et al., ).The pattern of change is complex with increases in grassland in some areas e.g. the Limousin [France] and Umbria [Italy], and decreases in others (UK, Western France, Netherlands, Belgium and Germany) (Caradec et al., ; Crofts & .

The management and productivity of lowland grassland in Britain has been transformed during the last 50 years, largely through greater fertilizer inputs, changes in stocking practices, increases in silage production, a greater emphasis on optimizing yields of nutrients rather than dry matter per se, and development of new harvesting techniques (Chamberlain et al. ; Fuller ). Oomes M.J.M., Olff H. & Altena H.J. () Effects of vegetation management and raising the water table on nutrient dynamics and vegetation change in a wet grassland. Journal of Applied Ecology, 33, ; Wakeham-Dawson A. & Smith K.W. () Birds and lowland grassland management practices in the UK: an overview.

The primary objective of the survey is to characterise and evaluate the vegetation cover of lowland grasslands in Wales to ensure the identification, protection and management of important grassland sites is appropriate. Data quality. Entire dataset has been extensively validated and verified. The main limitation of the data is their age. The Phase 1 Handbook presents a standardised system for classifying and mapping wildlife habitats in all parts of Great Britain, including urban areas. The Phase 1 habitat classification and associated field survey technique provides a relatively rapid system to record semi .
