Abstract

This project is a component of a three-part project with the umbrella name BIOFOREST, funded by the National Development Plan through COFORD and the EPA. The three organisations conducting the work were University College, Cork, Trinity College, Dublin and Coillte Teoranta. The aim of this project was “To identify those forestry management practices (with the possibility of using experimental plots) which are best suited to maintaining and enhancing biodiversity in plantation forests”. The focus of the project was open space within Irish forestry plantations. The project involved a literature review, a field survey of open spaces of different sizes and shapes in closed canopy Sitka spruce (Picea sitchensis) plantations and the establishment of an experiment on the manipulation of open space associated with roads within forests to enhance biodiversity.
