Biogenetic Reserves

Natural Resources Wales

This is a spatial dataset of the boundaries of Biogenetic Reserves in Wales. Biogenetic Reserves aim to conserve European flora, fauna and natural areas especially heathlands and dry grasslands, that although common in one country may be scarce in another. In this way a store of genetic material - the genes of plants and animals - is kept for the future, hence the term Biogenetic. To qualify for this designation, sites in the UK must first be SSSI or otherwise designated. The Bern Convention - signed by the UK government in 1982 led to the establishment of this European network of Biogenetic Reserves.
