This dataset contains tabulated production, consumption and trade data on minerals in the UK together with authoritative commentary on current developments in the minerals industry. Data are supplied from official sources, companies and trade associations. Where data cannot be acquired, estimates are given. In addition to UK (country) data, statistics are also given at planning region level and, for certain minerals, at county level. Units of measurements are tonnes, kilograms or carats, according to commodity. Value is also provided for imports and exports. The information will be of value to all those interested in Britain's minerals. The data captured by BGS spans from 1973 onwards and is updated annually.
This is a set of data arising from a detailed ecological survey of plots within a selected number of native Scots Pine woodlands within Scotland. Details about the trees, ground flora, soil, habitat types as well as general plot information were collected for each plot using standardised procedures and coding systems. Additionally, regeneration data were collected from each site. In all, 7 woods from throughout Scotland were identified for survey; these were a subset of 27 pinewoods surveyed previously using similar methods, in 1971. The survey was carried out in 1973 by the Nature Conservancy, a forerunner of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology.
