Ivy-leaved Water-crowfootIVY-LEAVED WATER-CROWFOOT (RANUNCULUS HEDERACEUS)
LOCAL BIODIVERSITY ACTION PLAN
Links to associated HAPs
The UK is thought to hold at least 20% of the global population of ivy-leaved water-crowfoot. Newton (1970) recorded ivy-leaved water-crowfoot as frequently occurring in Cheshire, in muddy margins of ponds and ditches, and spring heads.
The ivy-leaved water crowfoot was introduced to the Countdown programme in 1997. To date an LBAP Action Group is yet to be formed.
Individuals or groups interested in being part of the pending action are welcome.
* Poor ditch management.
* Infilling of ponds.
* Intensification of agriculture.
How are we helping to conserve Ivy-leaved Water-crowfoot in the Cheshire region?
* There is little current action aimed specifically at ivy-leaved water-crowfoot.
* Records are collected by the Cheshire Wildlife Trust and other groups, and are collated by the County Recorder.
Objectives, Targets and Actions
Objectives, targets and actions to help conserve ivy-leaved water-crowfoot in the Cheshire region can be found on the Biodiversity Action Reporting System (BARS) along with full details of our progress so far.
