Habitat Management for Conservation

Malcolm Ausden

Oxford University Press

Urban areas, gardens, and backyards can support a diverse range of wildlife, including a number of species rare in or absent from more semi-natural habitats. This chapter discusses the general principles of the management of these areas. It also briefly discusses management of mineral-extraction sites and developed land or buildings that are not currently in use, commonly known as brownfield or post-industrial sites. Mineral-extraction sites usually occur in the wider countryside, but are discussed here because of their similarity to brownfield sites.

Keywords:   habitat management, wildlife conservation, mineral extraction sites, brownfield sites, post-industrial sites
