Linear boundary features such as hedgerows are important habitats for invertebrates in agricultural landscapes. Such features can provide shelter, larval food plants and nectar resources. UK butterflies are known to rely on such features, however their use by moths is understudied. With moth species suffering from significant declines, research int...

Presentation - The effects of a dynamic group system on the social bonds of dairy cattle.
The ecological impact of recreation in woodlands and forests is now a subject of considerable world-wide interest. However, there are few studies examining the effects of recreation on woodland vegetation and soils in Britain. This paper quantifies the impact of controlled experimental trampling on three different woodland ground flora stands in lo...
Urban woodlands provide a range of opportunities for people to enjoy open-air recreation. Unfortunately, recreational trampling is a major contributor in facilitating ecological change in these woods, threatening their wildlife conservation value. This paper discusses the various woodland management techniques which are available to help to resolve...

Recreation Ecology Research Network (RERN) was established in 2005 to facilitate exchange among recreation ecologists and other colleagues interested in visitor impact research and management. Four specific goals include: 1) develop venues for better communication among recreation ecologists; 2) promote collaboration among recreation ecologists; 3) participate in meetings and other venues with other ecologists, recreation social scientists, and managers (to increase collaboration, identify funding sources and to establish professional networks for graduate students interested in recreation ecology); and 4) promote conceptual and theoretical development in the field. Besides this Network homepage, RERN also maintains the RECECOL Listserv for direct communication among RERN members and other interested colleagues. Currently we have about 200 subscribers. Anyone who is interested in joining the RERN and/or subscribing to the RECECOL Listsev, please contact the RERN Coordinator Dr. Yu-Fai Leung (Leung@ncsu.edu). If this subject area interests you, consider also joining the "Collaborative Learning Network for Visitor Impact Monitoring" LinkedIn Group (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/4889709)!
This project was conducted by a PhD student who was focusing on whether social bonding existed in dairy cattle housed within a dynamic system, and if so, could the presence of a preferred partner provide social support.
