Review of the diet and micro-habitat values for wildlife and the agronomic potential of selected grassland plant species (ENRR697)

The aim of the project was to review two important aspects of any attempts to increase wildlife on improved, relatively fertile grasslands. These issues are firstly, the value to invertebrates, birds and other vertebrates of particular grassland plants that could be introduced into such swards or maintained in them, and secondly the agronomic potential of such species, so that the fit of these swards into viable farming or equine business can begin to be assessed.
