Introduction

Differences in the woodland ecosystem are the result of different management strategies! Introduction: In this piece of work, I am studying the hypothesis, "Differences in woodland ecosystems are the result of different management strategies." This means the way woodlands are managed affect the ecosystems. Places like Bishops wood, need to be looked after and carefully managed, if they are to remain attractive. Bishops wood is very large park and attracts over 90 million visitors a year. People who work for the park are experts in planning, conservation and land management. They help to care for the landscape and look after the needs of visitors. They are also concerned about the people who live and work there. ...read more.

This is because the park doesn't want to attract visitors to the coniferous woodland, as they may cause damage.

there where benches and tables for visitors to relax and have picnics on. There was also a play area for children to play in; this keeps them away from getting lost in the woods and getting hurt on roads.

Coniferous woodlands are easier to maintain than deciduous woodlands. The different ways woodlands are managed, affects the amount of light and rain that reaches the floor. This also affects temperature, soil ph and soil moisture. All of these affect growth of trees and plants. So therefore looking at what I have found out I conclude, that I agree with the hypothesis, "Differences in woodland ecosystems are the result of different management strategies." ...read more.
