SNH Research Report 1024 - SCM survey of upland notified features on designated sites - An Teallach
Site Condition Monitoring (SCM) is SNH's rolling programme of monitoring of the condition of natural features (habitats, species populations and earth science interests) on protected areas in Scotland. This report summarises the field data collected by Colin Wells and Ruth Maier during SCM of the upland assemblage natural feature on An Teallach Site of Special Scientific Interest. The upland assemblage was found to be in unfavourable condition due to over-grazing by red deer, sheep and goats. Although unfavourable there were signs that many of the impacts could be considered to be 'legacy', from when animal numbers were higher and the site was burnt historically.
