About our website

This website is a developing resource for the Wildlife Gardening Forum and for the community of wildlife gardeners, conventional gardeners, allotmenteers, natural historians, ecologists and policy makers in Britain and beyond.As a small volunteer based charity, we are creating our website content through specialists on our trustee board, and many members with high levels of experience. 

We want to make the site a source for all relevant evidence-based information about gardens, people and biodiversity, and fill the gaps which the many other websites about garden wildlife tend not to cover.  Indeed where other sites cover subjects extremely well, such as for birds and butterflies, we will not reinvent the wheel but give you links to the sites we admire.  Consequently, we are  concentrating on the scientific evidence behind garden biodiversity, the evidence about garden management for biodiversity, and information relevant to education, human health training, planning and new build housing.

The material is presented here at three levels.  For some big topics such as garden biodiversity there is an introductory page which summarises what lies beneath. The main pages reached throug the menus pesent a basic and uncomplicated summary of what is known on the subject.  In many cases however we have created downloadable pdf files which provide considerably more information for those people who are interested.  These documents contain proper references to sources such as scientific papers.

There will be new pages appearing on a regular basis, including over 100 pages on the varieties of garden wildlife, including identification and life cycle data.  As new pages are created, they will appear in the main menu, and we will flag their appearance here and on the front page.

The revised Garden Wildlife section is now live, with lots of pages covering garden vertebrates, beetles, bees wasps and ants, and an introduction to the true bugs.  There's a page on plant galls there if you look for it!

This is the section of the site we are concentrating on at present, with a lot (c 70) more pages drafted and only needing editing and providing with illustrations before they can go live.

This section also introfuces pop-up links defining difficult words or concepts in insect biology - there are lots of these!.  With time this facility will extend to the rest of the site.

There is a new site-search page introduced in this section, but it will take a few days before Google has found all the items in the new pages.  Again, this search will be transferred to the rest of the site in due course.

Please let us know of any problems you have with this new section, or any contributions you would like to add about wild plants and animals in the garden.
