About this book

Designed as a one-stop reference for managers and advisers involved in scrub and shrub management for wildlife. Scrub is viewed from perspectives as diverse as being of value to many wildlife habitats where it is to be encouraged or maintained, through to being reduced or eradicated as it invades on more important vegetation. Profiles of 48 species of shrubs (and trees) are provided covering distribution, status, identification, growth characteristics, palatability to livestock and value to wildlife.

There is a decision tree to enable managers to arrive at the most environmentally sensitive management solutions backed up by details of the advantages and disadvantages of some 20 different management techniques. Descriptions of seven National Natures Reserves scattered around the UK show how the management of scrub has been carried out for the benefit or wildlife.

This publication incorporates the Herbicide Handbook.
