[Archive] Management of forests for capercaillie in Scotland

Lead Author: Robert Moss

Home publication [Archive] Management of forests for capercaillie in Scotland

The aim of this Bulletin is to summarise the best current information about the birds’ requirements and to provide guidelines for forest management which will benefit capercaillie. As far as possible, we base our recommendations on well-documented facts. Where hard data are not available, we make informed guesses based on anecdotal natural history and casual observations. Some of these guesses may be wrong; when we know more, we shall be able to improve upon them. This publication is still available in hardcopy.
