  • Threatened UK Habitats - Hay Meadows
    • Threats
      • 'Improved grassland' - ground sprayed with weed killers and seeded with high-yield plants.
      • Wildflowers are killed by regular cutting which reduces biodiversity
    • Creation
      • Traditional meadows not cut until end of summer
      • This allowed wildflowers to disperse their seeds before this
    • Conservation Measures
      • Create hay meadow reserves
