How does roadside vegetation management affect biodiversity? A systematic review.

Roadsides have the potential to support increased levels of biodiversity, however are currently managed using research from non-roadside grassland habitats.  A full systematic review was conducted into the effects of roadside management practices on plant and invertebrate diversity using the results from 54 studies on non-chemical interventions. The results demonstrate the effects of mowing on plant species richness and highlight large knowledge gaps concerning the impact on biodiversity, particularly in invertebrates,  providing not only a basis for management but also guidance for future research.

Stakeholder engagement

A new thematic series is proudly presented: Stakeholder engagement in systematic reviews and maps.

Edited by Neal Haddaway and Sally Crowe.

Aims and scope

Environmental Evidence is the journal of the Collaboration for Environmental Evidence (CEE). The Journal facilitates rapid publication of evidence syntheses, in the form of Systematic Reviews and Maps conducted to CEE Guidelines and Standards. We focus on the effectiveness of environmental management interventions and the impact of human activities on the environment. Our scope covers all forms of environmental management and human impacts and therefore spans the natural and social sciences. Subjects include water security, agriculture, food security, forestry, fisheries, natural resource management, biodiversity conservation, climate change, ecosystem services, pollution, invasive species, environment and human wellbeing, sustainable energy use, soil management, environmental legislation, environmental education.

Objective use of scientific evidence to inform policy or practice is a major aim and to that end the journal also publishes methodology papers and encourages submissions that promise advances in the field of evidence synthesis and dissemination.
