SS.SMx.CMx.ClloMx recorded () and expected () distribution in Britain and Ireland (see below)
For a list of 2004 characterising species please see the JNCC website.
To assess the sensitivity of the biotope, the sensitivity of component species is reviewed. Those species that are considered to be particularly indicative of the sensitivity of the biotope, and for which research has been undertaken in detail are shown below (see selection criteria). The biology of other component species of the biotope is also taken into account wherever information is known to the researcher.
There is little information available on the biology and sensitivity of the burrowing anemones in the IMX.An biotope so it has not been possible to select individual species to be indicative of sensitivity. Assessment of the ecology and sensitivity of the biotope has been carried out from general knowledge of the species present.
