Abstract

In view of the need to consider the value of large areas of countryside for wildlife conservation, it was proposed to investigate the relative importance of some of the parameters used in conservation evaluation studies. Two areas, one upland, one lowland, were chosen according to air photo availability, and habitats were mapped for each area. The best indicators of conservation value were found to be vertical strata combined with local scarcity in the upland study area, and vertical strata in the lowland study area. -from Author
