Hertfordshire County Council

Biodiversity refers to all wildlife and habitats, the wider ecosystem (ecology) and the functions they provide (ecosystem services).

The county has a number of distinctive and important habitats and sites, including chalk rivers, sites of European importance for wetland birds, and has one of the highest densities of woodland of any county.

Our ecology team provides specialist ecological advice on development and land management, and other ecological planning matters.
