About this book

This book provides information on how agricultural changes have affected lowland bird populations, detailed ecology on key species that have declined and practical advice on farmland management that will benefit these and other wildlife.

The first two chapters are largely based on scientific research by a range of conservation and agricultural organisations and published in scientific journals. The species ecology sections end with a summary of management advice specific to the species. Management of specific features is covered in more detail in the last chapter. The third chapter is based on the knowledge and experience of a wide range of farm conservation advisers. It covers all recognised management topics relevant to the conservation of lowland farmland birds, including those funded by agri-environment schemes in the UK.
