Butterflies and moths are disappearing from our countryside at an alarming rate, but nowhere more dramatically than in woodlands. Many species that were common only a few decades ago have become great rarities.
Woodland Management for Butterflies and Moths is intended for anyone involved in the management of woodland. It provides guidance on the woodland habitat features needed by butterflies and moths, and how to create, maintain and improve them.
Fifteen butterfly and moth species that are identified as "Lepidoptera of concern" (scarce and threatened lepidoptera for which woodlands are an important habitat in the UK) are given species accounts with distribution maps, and details about habitats and habitat management.
