- We found no evidence for the effects of managing stone-faced hedge banks on bird populations.
'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.
Stone-faced hedge banks are traditional boundary features in some agricultural landscapes, such as in the southwest of England. Management for biodiversity involves maintaining the wall with traditional materials.
