Ecological assessment of grassland biodiversity on lowland farms

May 12, 2010

A recent study, just published in Biological Conservation, was conducted to improve our knowledge of grassland biodiversity on lowland farms in Ireland with a view to helping assess their potential conservation value in a High Nature Value farmland context. The paper in question is The ecological status of grasslands on lowland farmlands in western Ireland and implications for grassland classification and nature value assessment and it appears in Biological Conservation, Volume 143, Issue 6, June 2010, Pages 1529-1539. The authors, from both NUIG and Teagasc,  are  Caroline A. Sullivan, Micheline Sheehy Skeffington, Mike J. Gormally and John A. Finn. The paper is behind a paywall but if anyone has a copy to share that would be welcome.
