Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Provide shelter habitat against highly adverse weather conditions We found no studies that evaluated the effects on butterflies and moths of providing shelter habitat against highly adverse weather conditions. ‘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.Collected, 05 Jul 2022 15:33:35 +0100Collected Evidence: Collected Evidence: Retain or plant trees to act as windbreaks One study evaluated the effects on butterflies and moths of retaining or planting trees to act as windbreaks.
