Brings together conservation management advice for a wide range of farmland wildlife to enable the integration of the needs of wider biodiversity into a conservation plan. Collectively the groups covered in this book represent species from the whole range of farmland habitats; by managing for these, a much wider range of biodiversity will benefit.
The first chapter sets the scene for planning wildlife conservation. Subsequent chapters explain the management that benefits individual groups of conservation concern or agricultural importance, written by an expert on the subject. These chapters consist of an introduction to the group, a description of their conservation status and habitat requirements, and details of the management that will fulfil these requirements.
