Paperback, 104 pages
A comprehensive summary of partridge research underlying the North Sea Region Interreg PARTRIDGE project.
This GWCT publication describes how grey partridge conservation helps to address the farmland biodiversity crisis across Europe and summarises the most relevant scientific evidence regarding grey partridge management and the biodiversity benefits associated with it.
It covers key findings about all stages of the partridge life cycle, looking at the habitats that partridges need for nesting, raising their young, winter cover and food, and how to manage predation pressures. It also describes the benefits of each measure to other wildlife present on farmland and discusses the roles of farmer, hunter, the general public, advisory bodies and scientists in restoring farmland biodiversity.
Perfect for anyone wanting to understand more about partridges or conservation-friendly farming, the 104-page book also features wonderful illustrations and is produced to the highest printing standards, including lay-flat binding for easier reading.
I may be biased, but this is a great book. It gives a simple overview of practical management techniques to help farmland wildlife and the science that led to their development. @FergusEwingMSP https://t.co/XWPmFyNoGQ— Dave Parish (@DaveParish1) August 18, 2020
