Threatened habitats of open woodlands

Woodlands are under pressure from fragmentation due to agriculture and urbanisation, pollution and the introduction of non native species for commercial use. Woodlands consisting of natural climax communities are rare as woodlands have been 'worked' and influenced by the activities of man.


The Geographic Information System (GIS) shows that the loss of UK woodlands and other natural habitats continues at a rate of 4.5% per decade.
