Risk of Phytophthora infection in heathland fragments across Scotland

These spatial layers contain risk factors and overall risk scores, representing relative risk of Phytophthora infection (Phytophthora ramorum and P. kernoviae), for heathland fragments across Scotland. Risk factors include climate suitability, proximity to road and river networks and suitability of habitat for key hosts of Phytophthora and were broadly concurrent with the period between 2007 and 2013. This research was funded by the Scottish Government under research contract CR/2008/55, 'Study of the epidemiology of Phytophthora ramorum and Phytophthora kernoviae in managed gardens and heathlands in Scotland' and involved collaborators from St Andrews University, Science and Advice for Scottish Agriculture (SASA), Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH), Forestry Commission, the Food and Environment Research Agency (FERA) and the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH).

Provenance & quality

The polygons depicted are from the LCM2007 broad habitat classes, namely broad habitat 10 encompassing heather and dwarf shrub, burnt heather, gorse and dry heath, and Broad Habitat 11, which is heather grass. Adam Butler from Biomathematics and Statistics Scotland (BioSS) provided statistical advice for habitat suitability modelling.
