Key messagesRead our guidance on Key messages before continuing
- We found no evidence of the effects of adopting protected species legislation 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.
Protecting individual species may maintain natural ecosystems such as forests. However, the effect is likely to depend on the species in question.
