Efficient conservation of Scotland’s native woodlands

Roslin- 30 May, 2014
By: Glenn Iason, JHI
Our native woodlands are home to numerous other species of conservation value and they provide a range of other ecosystem services. But how can we conserve them most efficiently? Foundation species such as trees, have a strong role in structuring associated communities and the potential of using the extended phenotype of foundation species as an efficient conservation tool is considered. Examples from native Scots pine are used to illustrate, the way in which the trees’ secondary chemistry, which is heritable and varies among individuals, drives its interactions with its biotic and abiotic environment and affect wider biodiversity and ecosystem function.
