Research, strategies and policies for protecting Scotland's rural biodiversity



Research, strategies and policies for protecting Scotland's rural biodiversity



Tearmann (4): 1-13



The development of biodiversiry thinking in Scotland is charted. Following the Convention on Biological Diversity in 1992, a number of structures were created to prepare strategies and plans for the Convention's implementation. In particular a research strategy saw the need for research to support the implementation of individual plans, research that was more generic in nature, and research related to monitoring and surveillance. More recently a full biodiversity strategy for Scotland has been prepared, consulted upon and finalised, and implementation plans are now going into effect. This strategy has been enshrined in the new nature conservation legislation of 2004, which places a duty on all public bodies and their employees to further the aims of biodiversity conservation. Nowhere is this seen to be more important than in Scotland's rural environment, especially in relation to the dynamic nature of its grasslands. Excellence in all of the sciences, be they natural or socio-economic, is required to provide the evidence on which the management of biodiversity can be based.
