A species-based approach was used to develop and define woodland habitat networks. A custom habitat network model was developed based on a generic focal species approach. The woodland habitat network model was based on the following structure:
The work showed the potential for applying a focal species approach to an area the size of Wales and provided new insights into how the woodlands of Wales could be potentially formed into discrete networks. This can provide useful support to landscape planning as part of the future sustainable development of Wales and aid its successful implementation.
By using more adapted native species, introducing more mixed species stands, and responding to the challenge of maintaining robust habitat networks, woodland ecosystems in Wales will be better able to cope with climate change. See adapting forests and woodlands in Wales to a future climate.
