Item description for Hedgerow History: Ecology, History And Landscape Character by Tom Williamson Gerry Barnes...
From the Scots pine windbreaks of the Brecklands to the ancient earth and stone banks of the West Country, hedges are an essential component of regional landscape character. A working knowledge of them is an essential part of every landscape historian's toolkit. This book brings our understanding of their history up to date.
Drawing upon a unique computerised analysis of hedges in Norfolk, the authors explore how hedges came into existence, and how they have changed over time. They move beyond the myth that a hedge can be dated simply by counting species, and develop instead a much more sophisticated account. They point out marked geographic variations in species content and diversity, and explore the ecological, economic and historical reasons for these differences.
