- BGD Topic 1: Bill Bealey (Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Edinburgh)
- BGD Topic 2: Clare Whitfield (Joint Nature Conservation Committee, UK)
- BGD Topic 3: Annika Nordin (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, Sweden)

Working Group Topics
Topic 1. Comparison of impact assessment and decision making approaches to determine the N deposition impacts of plans and projects in the context of Habitats Directive Article 6.3 obligations.
Topic 2. Comparison of approaches to assessing and reporting N deposition impacts on conservation status (Habitats Directive Article 17) and discussion of harmonising approaches for future reporting rounds.
Topic 3. New science on the effects of N deposition and concentrations on Natura 2000 sites, including bio-indicators, effects of N-form (e.g., NHx vs NOy), and the relationships between critical thresholds and biodiversity loss.
Topic 4. Approaches to modelling local N deposition and concentrations in the regulatory context of Natura 2000.
Topic 5. Options for future policy development to manage and mitigate the impacts of N deposition effects on the Natura 2000 network.
