Biodiversity Matters

Created by Borders FEI | Published 01.21.15

Although the work book was created to support the ‘Glenkinnon Burn Biodiversity Trail’ the curriculum support activities at section 3 (pages 22 to 65) can be used as a stand alone resource exploring ‘How a Woodland Works’ and includes topics with worksheets from tree classification through woodland structure, light and shade, seed and seed distribution to invertebrate and vertebrate studies.
Section 4 continues with keys covering freshwater and land invertebrates, small animals in streams and pitfall traps, woodland and water birds and tree identification.

The biodiversity trail is located near the small village of Caddonfoot approximately 1.5 miles from Clovenfords in the Tweed Valley. (Grid reference -NT 428341.)
