Conservation Evidence strives to be as useful to conservationists as possible. Please take our survey to help the team improve our resource.

Providing evidence to improve practice

The journal, Conservation Evidence

Our online journal publishes research, monitoring results and case studies on the effects of conservation interventions. All papers include some monitoring of the effects of the intervention and are written by, or in partnership with, those who did the conservation work. It includes interventions such as habitat creation, habitat restoration, translocations, reintroductions, invasive species control, and education or integrated conservation development programmes, from anywhere around the world.

The use of soil disturbance in the management of Breckland grass heaths
Dolman P.M. & Sutherland W.J. (1994), 41, 123-140

Contemporary management of heath and grassland for nature conservation often reinstates or mimics traditional land use practice, particularly grazing and cutting. However, soil disturbance has often been overlooked as a management technique in Britain, despite successful use by other European heathland managers. An experiment was undertaken to examine the effects of different types of disturbance treatments upon the flora of a calacareous, lichen-rich Breckland grass heath in Norfolk, eastern England.

Wildlife corridors can provide connectivity in habitats that have been fragmented by human activities. A study was undertaken to assess how small mammals (mice and voles) used crossing structures across the Trans-Canada Highway in Alberta, in relation to crossing structure size, vegetation cover at crossing entrances and the distance between crossing structures and their home range.
