NatureScot Research Report 1211 - Establishing woodland plants in broadleaved woods - interim best practice guidance for conservation translocations.


This report sets out interim best practice guidance on how to establish small populations of common woodland plants in broadleaved woods that can then spread naturally within the wood over time. This work can be seen in the wider context of conservation translocations in general, although the reintroduction of woodland plant species is typically local scale and noncontroversial. The end point should be to develop naturalistic and attractive woodland plant communities which benefit both biodiversity and woodland amenity.
