About this book

A useful resource for all those with an interest in habitat management, creation and restoration - from students to environmental practitioners. Featuring a varied collection of habitat case studies, it brings together good practice guidance and case study information with technical aspects of habitat management, and looks at the planning context, as well as domestic and EU legislation affecting habitats.

The chapters in this volume are written by fifteen different authors, all of whom are specialists in their fields. Each aims to provide an introduction to the habitat, consider relevant legislation, and set out best practice guidance for habitat management/creation/restoration. These principles are exemplified through case studies from around the UK and overseas, and reference is made to a wide range of texts, journal papers and websites to support the reader further.

The varied and up-to-the-minute case studies and practical guidance provide information on:

Involving and winning support from local communities
Choosing contractors and drawing up contracts
Different methods of comparing habitats
Monitoring as a key to project success
Creating `role model' projects
The contribution of habitat development to economic and social regeneration.
