Cafe Scientifique Online: Sid Valley Hedgerows

Ed Dolphin, Sidmouth Arboretum

The Sid Valley’s hedgerows make a wonderful contribution to the look of the valley, but they make a more important contribution to our biodiversity.  They are home to more than 40 woody species, at least 150 herbaceous species, and a myriad of invertebrates and vertebrates.  Also, they act as corridors connecting populations that would be isolated otherwise.  Sidmouth Arboretum has conducted a survey of the hedgerows which included a fascinating glimpse into their long history.
Ed Dolphin is a tree enthusiast and Treasurer to the Arboretum.  He writes regular articles in local media and has just written a book on The Trees of Sidmouth for the SVA.
