Finally domestic gardens are starting to get the attention they deserve with regards biodiversity attributes - http://ec.europa.eu/environment/integration/research/newsalert/pdf/...
Very interesting article. Thanks for sharing, Pip.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention Pip.
Right up my street, this. Can't get enough landscape ecology, particularly stuff about corridors and island biogeography. There have been various studies about the habitat value of gardens but not so many measuring the need for corridors to connect them to viable habitats with source populations. Cheers.
