Shadow Woods & Scrub: The Search for Lost Landscape & Future Wood Pasture
A further free download has been added to the Wildtrack Store - Shadow Woods & Scrub: The Search for Lost Landscape & Future Wood Pasture by Ian Rotherham.
"Take a closer look at areas of scrubby grassland or heath and you see the tell-tale signs of the Domesday shadow woods still persisting. Furthermore, in some cases it seems that the landscape that may re-emerge from the shadows as open-scrub woodland could perhaps, if managed effectively, generate new wood pastures for tomorrow."

Two new free research downloads have been added to the Wildtrack Store:
IUFRO World Series Vol 37 - Ancient Woodlands and Trees: A Guide for Landscape Planners and Forest Managers
Ancient Woodlands and Trees: A Guide for Landscape Planners and Forest Managers
Eds: AH Colak, S Kirca, ID Rotherham
This book comprises fifteen major contributions by leading scholars on the ecology, history, heritage, and management of ancient trees, ancient woodlands and forests. Taking trees, woods and forests as eco-cultural resources, the authors explore ecology and nature, history, tradition and heritage, and the evidence base of archaeology, literature, and archives. The book is dedicated to the memory and works of the late Professor Oliver Rackham OBE whose research and writing triggered an interest in this field by the many that followed.
It is a great pleasure for IUFRO to be involved in the production and publication of this book since it is highly relevant to the aims and objectives and visions of the organisation. Furthermore, many of the authors are actively involved in IUFRO activities. Finally, I would like to extend my thanks to TÜBA for this fruitful collaboration."
