East Dartmoor Woods and Heath NNR : Yarner Wood NNR - Large-scale variation in the temporal patterns of the frass fall of defoliating caterpillars in oak woodlands in Britain: implications for nesting woodland birds (RP1354)

This published scientific journal article (BTO Bird Studies) includes data from Yarner Wood NNR as part of a countrywide research project to quantify large-scale patterns in the timing and duration of the spring peak in abundance of defoliating caterpillars in oak woodlands in Britain as these caterpillars are a major food resource for woodland breeding birds. Traps were deployed to collect caterpillar frass in 19 oak woods including Yarner Wood.
