The aim of this programme was to improve our advice both on reducing the damage caused by large herbivores as well as on the use of large herbivores as a management tool to achieve biodiversity objectives. The project is now discontinued but has been included for information and advice.
Most of this work forms part of the Vertebrate management research programme funded by the Forestry Commission.
Work on some projects is performed in partnership with and is funded by other institutions and organisations.
The Forestry Commission implements Government policy on both woodland biodiversity and sustainability. Deer and stock can have a major impact on both the biodiversity value of woodlands and on their sustainable management. Our research improves the guidance we provide to woodland managers on achieving the desired impact.
