"This authoritative, illustrated study clarifies the past and present role played by hedges in the development of agriculture and in current farming practices. One of the most popular groupings of shrub, the hedge was a favored element in the history of landscape architecture and often played a valuable part in the provision of grazing areas that were common in nineteenth century agriculture. Now, when it has achieved a reputation as a haven for insects and pests, the hedge is frequently being destroyed and the authors dispel many misconceptions that are causing this widespread destruction of hedges. Referring to many recent studies, this latest volume in The New Naturalist Series accounts for the role of hedges in the breeding of various animals, as a shelter and often as a helpful feature in farming."
