The following Habitat, Species and Generic action plans make-up the London Biodiversity Action Plan. Additional statements and draft species consultations have been devised to draw attention to those species which do not have an individual action plan but which are felt to be of regional importance in a London context. Many of the species listed are also UK BAP priority species..
