Management and creation of Open Mosaic Habitat for invertebrate conservation

Some brownfield sites can support comparable invertebrate diversity to semi- natural early successional habitats. This was recognised in the designation of Open Mosaic Habitat on Previously Developed Land as a UK conservation priority. This project developed in response to the need for information to assist with management of brownfields protected for nature conservation, and from the lack of evidence about effectiveness of brownfield mosaic habitat creation. The study included: management interventions at Canvey Wick in Essex, a brownfield nature reserve; mosaic habitat creation by substrate addition in unmanaged grassland; and placement of artificial aculeate nests on green roofs in London.
