Habitat Action Plans for different woodland types suggested that a series of minimum intervention sites should be established across the country. This report identified a provisional list of sites that might form the basis for such a series to be used as a basis for discussions. A key use of minimum intervention areas was for research and monitoring. Therefore proposals were made for the basic records that might be carried out on each site. A companion English Nature Research Report (No. 384) by George Peterken covers the concepts and rationale behind minimum intervention as a treatment for woodland reserves.
