Topical information on ecology, conservation and management for Scottish native woodlands

This authoritative textbook provides a convenient single source of up-to-date information about the fascinating native woodland habitats of Scotland, putting these into their wider British, European and global contexts.

It draws upon professional experience of scientific research, survey and management, where the author has studied many important native woodlands in Scotland and beyond. It helps readers understand and value these irreplaceable habitats, at a time when they are required to produce a growing range of services to Scotland's people, while facing threats from climate change, pests and diseases.

Following a contextual introduction and history four chapters deal with individual Scottish native woodland types - pinewoods, oak/ birch woodlands, ash woodlands and wet woodlands, along with minor types such as juniper, hazel, aspen and elm. Three chapters deal with actions for native woodland - conservation management, woodland creation and inter-linkages with plantations. A shorter chapter looks to the future, followed by a comprehensive gazetteer of native woodland sites to visit.

Whether a student, a private woodland owner, a professional forester or interested in woodlands as a rambler or amateur naturalist, this attractive book provides the information you need in one convenient volume.

Key Features:

Covers all major aspects of relevance to Scottish native woodland ecology, conservation and management within a single convenient volume
Pitched at a technical level to attract those relatively new to the subject
Contains illustrated examples of the author's extensive record of woodland study within Scotland and beyond
Timely publication when interest in native woodlands has never been stronger

About the Author:


Scott Wilson is a Consultant Forester and Forest Ecologist based in Aberdeen. He has practised as a self-employed forestry and ecological consultant since 1998, holding the professional status of Chartered Forester since 2001. He is a regular contributor to forestry journals and publications.

Review:


"The book is a useful introduction to, and overview of, Scottish native woodland. The text is easy to read and will be generally accessible to the non-specialist, with a reasonable number of coloured plates and black-and-white photographs to illustrate the text." -- Keith Kirby, Quarterly Journal of Forestry


"Scott Wilson takes the reader on a tour of native woodland habitats throughout Scotland, emphasizing their immense value. Wilson places the habitats in both ecological and historical contexts within the greater Scottish landscape, as well as within an international forest context, detailing the ecological development of Scotland's native woodlands from the last ice age to the twenty-first century...A textbook intended for students in forestry and the environmental sciences, The Native Woodlands of Scotland is also for those with a general interest in Scotland's land management, woodlands, wildlife, and natural history." -- Forest History Today
