Natural developments in a minimum intervention area in Buckholt Wood, part of the Cotswolds Commons and Beechwoods National Nature Reserve (ENRR519)

This report is based on a long-term monitoring scheme and is concerned with natural stand change in an area of mature beech woodland. Changes in tree and shrub layers in an area of Buckholt Wood that was treated by minimum intervention were quantified by recording three permanent transects in 1992/4 and 2000. The influence of site condition and past management, the occurrence of features associated with mature woodland, the patterns of stand development, and recommendations for research and monitoring are discussed.
