Background information and definitions
Forests or woods that are converted into new development areas suffer from almost total loss of the original biodiversity. Therefore, incorporation of patches of the original vegetation into new developments should have a positive effect on biodiversity. However, for many of the original species, the area of their new ‘island habitat’ may be insufficient to maintain populations.
