In order to protect and enhance biodiversity at any site (be it rainforest or university campus) it is very important first to recognise what is already there – that is, the current ‘natural capital’. To this end, the UEL Environmental Research Group (ERG) was commissioned to carry out a baseline survey of biodiversity for the UEL estate, comprising Stratford and Docklands campuses. The survey measured (mapped and described) current biodiversity levels, and this report presents these results and makes recommendations for enhancing biodiversity across the estate. It is worth noting that while we recognise there are a number of conflicting interests and aims in estates management, this report is written in the form of best practice in terms of biodiversity management.
