Practical Conservation Summary


Practical Conservation: Site Assessment and Management Planning by Joyce Tait

Efforts made in recent years to alert the public to the need for land conservation have led to an increased demand for training and advice from those involved in farming, forestry, recreational land usage and land management. This book explains how to assess the present conservation value of a piece of land and how to draw up a plan for its long-term management. Emphasis is placed on maintaining areas that are of high value, enhancing areas of lower value, creating new conservation areas where possible and integrating all of these with the commercial or recreational use of the land. This book has been prepared as an Open University coursebook, produced in association with the Nature Conservancy Council as part of the study pack "Practical Conservation: A Teaching Programme for Land Managers". Joyce Tait is the co-author of "Management of Pests and Pesticides: Farmers' Perceptions and Practices" and "Site Assessment and Management Planning".
