Kinzig et al. propose a social gradient similar to the ecological urban-rural gradient to capture changes in social patterns and processes, and recognized the importance of the scale of management: top-down and bottom-up. Top-down decisions reflect the broad scale of city-level management strategies and decisions affecting public lands such as (). Ecological and aesthetic values in urban forest management. Urban Forestry and Urban Greening (). Ecological and biological determination of invasion success of non-native plant species in urban woodlands with special regard to short-lived monocarps. ().

  Devon hedges and wildlife 1: general description and conservation significance Devon's hedges are of tremendous importance for wildlife (biodiversity). Indeed, they are the most common and widely distributed wildlife habitat in Devon, forming a dense web across all but the highest ground in the county.

Appropriate management of our roadside verges is essential. Without careful management, wildflowers on our road verges can be lost through too frequent cutting, or outcompeted by brambles, scrub and vigorous coarse grasses.

Flowering roadside hedgebank in Westleigh, North Devon. Devon County Council Grass Cutting Policy This review paper summarizes findings of several field studies conducted in rural landscapes of the St.

Lawrence River Valley (southeastern Canada) in order to document the habitat structure and the biodiversity value (birds, small mammals, and plant communities) of ten different types of LGI (hedgerows, riparian strips, and roadside verges).

Verges at the side of 'urban roads' will be cut seven times a year in order to maintain safety for all road users. Verges at the side of rural roads will still be cut, albeit less frequently than they have been historically.

Please note it is dangerous to maintain verges, Roadside verges are cut for road safety purposes to maintain visibility at junctions and to provide room for people to walk on the pavement.

We have two grass cutting schedules for our roads - one for roads in urban areas and another for rural roads. We cut grass verges along the majority of Norfolk’s roads between May and September each :// /roads/road-maintenance/trees-hedges-and-grass-verges.

Introduction. Animal pollinators are essential for the production of many crops (Klein et al., ) and for the reproduction of many wild plants (Ollerton et al., ), yet declines of some pollinator species have been recorded in several regions worldwide (Potts et al., ).A central cause of declines is the loss and degradation of suitable habitats due to urban and agricultural Welcome to Devon County Council's website, giving you access to a full range of council information and ://   These urban barn owls nest in industrial structures and under highway bridges, and hunt the remaining grass habitats in the urban landscape, such as roadside grass verges, major highway on-and-off ramps and medians, patches of unmown grass in parks, backyards, and parcels of grass in the process of being rezoned for industrial or residential The roadside verges and their vegetation in selected counties of north England were evaluated for their conservation status.

Thirty five different road sections each 50 m long along different A and B class roads were surveyed and the criteria selected for conservation evaluation included verge area, plant diversity, species richness, disturbance, presence of rare species and structure of.
