Abstract

Introduction/background Coastal cliffs occur as a marked break in slope between the land and the sea. They may have sloping to vertical faces and form when slippage and/or coastal erosion take place. They have a range of geomorohological features depending on their resilience, structure and exposure to weathering and the action of the sea. In the 1970s and 1980s, the Nature Conservancy and later the Nature Conservancy Council (Governmental Agencies) began work to establish the status of sea cliff habitats around the United Kingdom. This special issue seeks to raise the profile of this important but neglected habitat in Europe.
