Where have all the flowers gone? The impact of herbivores on woodlands in Scotland and Europe.

Sciences, Social_Studies Secondary SNH

This thought provoking blog post by Kate Holl, SNH’s woodland advisor, explores why the ground flora of Scottish woodland differs so markedly from those in other European countries, illustrated by visits to sites in France, Norway and Iceland. She reflects on how browsing pressure by herbivores differs between countries. This might make interesting reading for students of Science (Biodiversity & Interdependence), Environmental Science and similar disciplines.
