This computer file resulted from a discussion between Colin Tubbs, Denis Bellamy, of the National Museum of Wales, and Emma Wrigglesworth of the New Forest Committee. The subject was the need to produce interactive computer resources for schools in the New Forest area. Colin agreed to the use of the text of his book, The New Forest; An ecological history for this purpose. The aim was to for it to be formatted as a self-indexing programme, and made freely available within the Schools in…

Man, forestry, and forest landscapes. Trends and perspectives in the evolution of forestry and woodland history research
From the middle of the 19th century forestry strongly favoured the economic approach of attaining the maximum forest rent, an approach that was extended to most of the world under the framework of
The plant communities of valley mires in the New Forest, Hampshire
TLDR
Continuing conservation concern is required to safeguard the full range of variation present in the valley mires of the New Forest.
Some Aspects of the Phytosociology of Heathland and Related Communities in the New Forest, Hampshire, England
TLDR
The plant associations identified range from those of wet heathland to those of dry, acid grassland; however the most widespread community is composed of Calluna vulgaris, Erica tetralix and Molinia caerulea, whilst there is also a common dry heath grouping of Agrostis setacea, Ulex minor and Erica cinerea.
An evaluation of the impact of anthropogenic pressures on woodland regeneration in the New Forest, Hampshire
TLDR
A field survey was carried out to measure the extent and severity of human activitities in the woodlands, and regeneration patterns were compared using canonical correlation analysis to evaluate the links between the two sets.
Ecological aspects of new forest streams, draining one of Britain's unique areas
The New Forest, in the south of England (Fig. 1), is a unique area of Britain. It contains a collection of habitats now rare in lowland Europe. It is also under severe pressure from development and
MODERN POLLEN-REPRESENTATION FACTORS FOR WOODS IN SOUTH-EAST ENGLAND
TLDR
The correlations between pollen and basal-area data were significant for all tree taxa except Fraxinus, Fagus and Salix; the correlations for these taxa were higher when the data were expressed as percentages.
The temperate deciduous forests
The deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere have been profoundly changed by long-established and repeated clearance for settlement and agriculture, even in relatively recently settled North
