Conclusion

While few taxa are found exclusively within field margins, it is likely that many would have reduced ranges or be absent altogether from intensively managed grassland farms without these or other non-cropped habitats. Where the field margin flora has become impoverished over time, this may be rejuvenated or re-established through processes such as natural regeneration, hay-strewing and reseeding. However, the success of any of these methods will to a large extent depend on soil fertility status, nutrient exclusion, the abundance of particular species seeds in the seed bank and subsequent management of the vegetation through cutting and/or grazing.
