Background information and definitions
This intervention may involve managing the unfarmed land under power lines to provide benefits to wildlife. For instance one study in the USA found more bee species under power lines managed for wildlife (areas of dense scrub) than in areas of annually mown grassland (Russell et al. 2005).
