Species listed on the Scottish Biodiversity List

The Scottish Biodiversity List is a list of species and habitats that Scottish Ministers consider to be of 'principal importance' for biodiversity conservation in Scotland.  The list helps public bodies carry out their 'duty to conserve biodiversity' by identifying the species and habitats which are the highest priority for biodiversity conservation in Scotland.
