New books from STRI

12.10am 3rd October 2003 - Media

‘Rhododendron & its Management‘ ‘Bracken & its Management‘ and ‘Gorse & its Management‘ are new titles in the series ‘Studies in Golf Course Management‘ commissioned by the R&A.
Written by Bob Taylor and Lee Penrose from the Sports Turf Research Institute (STRI) Ecology team, with contributions from Dr Ian Rotherham at Sheffield Hallam University, all three books are aimed at an audience with varying knowledge and experience.
These three plant species can form an important and integral part of the landscape, providing valuable visual, strategic and ecological interest. However, if ‘left to Nature‘ without careful, sustainable management they can become invasive. Individual plants will lose their aesthetic value by becoming woody and leggy and with a shortened life span.
The books detail not only the need for management but also contain important information about background, biology, ecology and conservation significance. Published in paperback, the books contain colour photographs throughout. All are priced at £7.50 each plus post and packing.
Other titles in the series to date include ‘Heathland and Moorland Management‘ Nest Boxes for Birds and Mammals‘ and ‘Confessions of a Chairman of Green‘.
