Whilst indicators are useful mechanisms for summarising messages, they can never describe all the changes in the UK’s biodiversity. They are best seen, as their name suggests, as indicative of the general state of biodiversity. Whilst they will form the basis of the UK’s assessment of progress towards the biodiversity targets, other factors and sources of information will also need to be taken into account.
