Background information and definitions
Vegetation may be planted at the edge of waterways to reduce the amount of pollution entering the water within agricultural and forestry areas, and help protect riparian foraging habitats for bats.
For a similar intervention, see ‘Prevent pollution from agricultural land or forestry from entering watercourses’. See also ‘Retain riparian buffers in logged areas’ and ‘Retain riparian buffers on agricultural land’ for studies that retain riparian buffers as habitat for bats.
