Ash dieback: long-term monitoring of impacts on biodiversity
Hinsley, S. A. & Pocock, M. J. O.
This report was compiled using the information from the pre-workshop consultations, the outputs from the workshop, and the information (and other documents) gathered by the questionnaires and related informal information requests/discussions.


The overall objective of this study was to scope-out the options for a long-term monitoring strategy of the impacts of ash dieback on biodiversity in the UK.  This objective was addressed using a 3-day facilitated workshop at CEH Wallingford, bringing together expertise from CEH, various NGOs and the statutory agencies.  The main questions addressed were: (1) What are the monitoring needs for ash dieback? (2) How suitable are existing surveys? (3) How does current monitoring need to be enhanced or extended?
