Wildlife Habitat Management – The Management of Lowland Heathlands for Wildlife

Lowland heath is an extremely scarce habitat in both national and international contexts. Western Europe possible contains less than 150,000ha, of which more than a third is in the UK. Once far more extensive, heaths have been reclaimed for agriculture, forestry and urban development. Most remaining areas are losing their wildlife value owing to the spread of Bracken.
