  • Practices that have directly / indirectly removed habitats & reduced species diversity
    • Removal of hedgerows / woodlands
    • Monocultures
    • Filling in ponds / draining marshes
    • Over-grazing of land preventing regeneration of woodland
    • Use of pesticides / inorganic fertilisers - reducing SD & polluting watercourses
    • Escape of farm waste into water courses > killing fish / other organisms
    • Lack of crop rotation > poor soil structure
