A Resurvey of Selected Moorland Agri-environment Agreement Sites - LM0431

Description
Upland habitats including dry and wet heath, blanket bog and calcareous grassland are Priority Habitats under the UK Biodiversity Action Plan and the UK Post-2010 Biodiversity Framework. Many sites in England have been subjected to long-term monitoring to assess the outcomes on habitat condition of reducing grazing intensity and other management, including altered burning regimes, under agri-environment schemes and Environmental Cross Compliance regulations. The information is required to guide both generalised prescriptions and management practices at individual sites.
