Woodland: A Hidden Wealth of Wildlife

Roy Nelson, PhD

5 weekly sessions on Thursdays 2.00 pm 4.00 pm, starting 2 May

A larger variety of plants and animals live in woodland than in any other part of the countryside and surveys of the woodland flora and fauna has revealed a complex web of relationships through which they live together. The woodland can be divided into layers, each revealing its own unique group of organisms. Many species live their whole life at one level, but with many traversing between layers. These layers include the subsoil and soil, ground or field level, shrub level or lower canopy, and finally the tree or canopy level. This course will investigate these unique habitats, using examples of the webs of life that are existing in woodlands of all ages and at all levels. The course will also provide practical advice on how to establish and maintain this diversity in small urban gardens through to larger tracts of woodland.
