- We found no studies that evaluated the effects of increasing the proportion of semi-natural habitat in the farmed landscape on bat populations.
‘We found no studies’ means that we have not yet found any studies that have directly evaluated 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.
This intervention is concerned with general increases in the proportion of natural or semi-natural habitat in the landscape. Studies describing the effects of creating specific habitat types and the use of individual restored sites are discussed in ‘Habitat restoration and creation’. For studies that may carry out this intervention alongside other interventions to benefit bats on farmland, see ‘Introduce agri-environment schemes’.
