This book provides an invaluable, comprehensive and practical
introduction to conservation issues associated with current farming
practice. Representing both industry and conservation as an
integrated and holistic system, it explores conservation issues
within every farming discipline; from arable and horticulture to
grasslands, woodlands, aquatic and coastal farming and will include
an assessment of the impact of global warming. The book includes
relevant case studies and international, real-world examples,
focusing on applied management and not just ecological facts,
theories and principles.
The carefully structured book begins by introducing the overall
subject including some statistics on current farming activities,
giving a brief outlook for the future of farming systems in
relation to conservation. Each subsequent chapter will have its own
introduction setting the commercial context and conservation value
of an example farm, and will progress with a series of case studies
that will include the following elements: site assessment; species
list; soils management options; and a habitat management plan. A
summary section will draw together the common themes of the chapter
and develop a lead-in to subsequent chapters.
It will provide students with an informed appreciation of
current practice whilst raising questions about the development of
conservation in farming in the future.
