The Scrub Management Handbook: Guidance on the management of scrub on nature conservation sites (IN124)

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

This Handbook was designed as a one-stop reference for managers and advisers involved in scrub and shrub management for wildlife. Scrub is viewed from perspectives as diverse as being of value to many wildlife habitats where it is to be encouraged or maintained, through to being reduced or eradicated as it invades on more important vegetation. Profiles of 48 species of shrubs (and trees) are provided covering distribution, status, identification, growth characteristics, palatability to livestock and value to wildlife.

Please note that this document is published for historical and research purposes.
