About this book

Language: Dutch

Management of heaths is a hotly debated topic. With proposed methods ranging from removal of topsoil with vegetation (known in Dutch as "plaggen") to using large herbivorous grazers – all parties involved have their own opinion on the matter. Heidebeheer bundles current knowledge from research and practice in an accessible format, offering a new ideas for conservationists.

Heidebeheer contains everything about heath biotopes, heath management, and its effects on flora and fauna:
- background information about heath landscapes (formation, water management, decline, recovery, and structure)
- modern and traditional management methods, such as controlled burning, construction of fields, and use of "visgraatplaggen", the removal of topsoil in a herringbone pattern.
- its effects on flora and fauna
- methods of management detailed for every heath biotope: sand drifts, dry and wet heaths, and fens
- The use of monitoring, vegetation and fauna monitoring, and other methods
- a list of heath and sand drift areas in the Netherlands and Belgium that have a high value in terms of their flora and fauna
- numerous practical examples, copiously illustrated

A complete practical guide for conservationists, foresters, and volunteers.
