Phys.org: Historic cultural records inform scientific perspectives on woodland uses

Phys.org: Historic cultural records inform scientific perspectives on woodland uses. “Scientists at the University of York and University College Cork have investigated how cultural records dating back 300 years could help improve understanding of the ways in which science interprets the many uses of woodland areas. The researchers hope that the work will give a cultural narrative to environmental data collected over time, but also give new insight into the ways in which woodland management systems can be adapted to increase a sense of ownership amongst communities that live near woodland areas.”
