Habitat management news

Quarrying of limestone continues to have a major impact on conservation and landscape in many areas of Britain; in 1988 approximately 14,000 hectares were affected by limestone-quarrying. Abandoned quarries are slow to revegetate naturally and for modern large-scale quarries the time involved is unacceptable; as a result, there is increasing interest in their active restoration.
