Abstract

Six main types of habitat on these abandoned lines are identified and characteristic species associated with each habitat are described. Particularly important areas which possess locally rare plant species are also described. A series of objectives for the future conservation management of this linear resource includes the control of future coal reclamation schemes and the protection of those sections of line with locally rare plants. -from Authors
