Action: Re-route paths, control access or close paths
- We found no evidence for the effects of re-routing paths, controlling access or closing paths on forests.
'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
Access to vulnerable areas in forests can be controlled by re-routing paths of prohibiting access to roads and paths for example. Studies looking at path and sign creation are discussed in “Create managed paths/signs to contain disturbance”.
