Interim assessment of the effects of the foot and mouth disease outbreak on England’s biodiversity (ENRR430)

Livestock farming has an integral role in the conservation of England’s biodiversity. This report makes an interim assessment of how the large scale outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD) in 2001 may affect that biodiversity. The purpose was to assist English Nature in the urgent task of developing a package of strategic recovery aid, and to inform and assist other organisations, at local, regional and national levels, who were involved in FMD recovery plans and in the wider re-assessment of agricultural policies.
