Habitats and Rare Priority and Protected Species (HaRPPS) Beta version


HaRPPS Beta Version 1.0 was released in March 2008, and was quickly followed by release 1.1 in August 2008. Beta Version 2 was released in April 2010, with the current version being HaRPPS v2.0.3.


Currently 126 rare, Priority, and protected species associated with woodland or forest habitat are included in HaRPPS. The system is currently in a peer review phase in which the content of the database is being checked for scientific accuracy.

Parts of the interface are still under development, and information about the development history and current work is available within the application.  

Using the system

The HaRPPS system will provide up to date information about rare, Priority and protected species of woodland habitats for forest and woodland managers.
