Rides, roadsides and open spaces in lowland forests are important for biodiversity, and active management can maintain or greatly enhance their value. Being recommended for all woodland managers, this book aims to provide an understanding of the role of edges in forest ecology and enable assessment of the importance of edges in a particular situation. It provides management options to maintain and increase the value of edges for wildlife in general or for specified species groups. It also gives practical advice on strategy, design, maintenance and monitoring.
