Abstract
This dataset provides an Integrated Habitat Network (IHN) for native woodlands in Scotland. Its purpose is to aid the scoring process when assessing Forestry Grant Scheme (FGS) applications made under the SRDP (2014-2020) programme. It identifies three levels of information:- - core native woodlands - primary zones that are within a 'least-cost distance' of 500m - secondary zones that are within a 'least-cost distance' of 2,000m These latter two zones represent the differing dispersal abilities of generic woodland species across surrounding land which is not source native woodland.

Statement
Source native woodland patches were taken from the Native Woodland Survey of Scotland (NWSS) by selecting all polygons that were of type ‘Native Woodland’ (>50 % native species in the canopy). The 'least cost distance' analysis was run against the EUNIS Land Cover Scotland dataset created by SNH from a composite of best available national data sources (including OS MasterMap, NWSS and NFI, LCS88 and LCM2007). Cost values were adapted from previous Delphi studies conducted by Forest Research. No minimum patch size was defined beyond the inherent minimum mapping unit of 0.5ha in the NWSS. Full maximum dispersal distances of 500m and 2,000m were used. A technical GIS methodology is available from SNH Geographic Information Group. Attributes: Zone - Core Native Woodland, Primary Zone, Secondary Zone
