Nature conservation and nature reserves. Report of the Committee appointed by Council on 26 May, 1942. Approved by Council, October, 1943
J. Ecol 32: 45-82
The Committee was set up by the British Ecological Society to consider the question of nature conservation in Britain, with particular reference to plant and animal communities and species. The only method of preserving wild vegetation with its population of lower animals, and so of maintaining the beauty and interest of characteristic British scenery, is by setting aside certain areas as nature reserves.
