Hedgehogs in the Linescape at Gilbert White's Field Study Centre

A talk by Hugh Warwick from his latest book Linescapes, Remapping and Reconnecting Britain's Fragmented Wildlife

We have a very definite fondness for lines - we make them wherever we go - hedges, walls, ditches and dykes, canals, railways and roads. These ubiquitous lines have become embedded in the landscape and absorbed into the ecosystem, acting as either agents of connectivity or fragmentation for wildlife. In his latest book Linescapes, Remapping and Reconnecting Britain's Fragmented Wildlife, Hugh Warwick explores the history, both social and natural, of these lines and argues that they can, if we are brave enough, work as ecological goods. And the animal that perhaps best illustrates the impact of these lines is the hedgehog - named after our best-loved linear feature and stereotypically flattened by our most used line.
