This chapter discusses the Upper Seeds field experiment done in Wytham. It discusses the ways of how the vegetation and invertebrate fauna of open habitats develop through interplay of colonization, management, and site history. It focuses the Upper Seeds field succession experiment and looks into how ecologists can determine factors that influence the success of flora and fauna. It highlights the importance of the experiment and the knowledge that conservation managers can gain in recolonizing and creating new grassland.

Keywords:   Upper Seeds field experiment, Wytham, vegetation, invertebrate fauna, open habitats, colonization, grassland
