This IPIECA guide is designed to help HSE professionals and other relevant staff, e.g. those involved with project planning, in the oil and gas industry to develop Biodiversity Action Plans (BAPs) for their sites and projects. BAPs are a systematic approach to biodiversity conservation that can build on, and be integrated with, existing company activities and processes throughout the oil and gas project life cycle.  [Published: 2005]

To our knowledge, this is the first attempt to produce a global estimate of the scope of community conservation. Given the limited quantity and quality of the data, this analysis should be viewed as a first step, and we hope it will encourage others to examine this issue and improve our collective understanding of community conservation.

The area is part of a large piece of land surrounding an old house that was bought by a successful tradesman in 1768 and then split several times between its heirs. The last division dates back to 2006. The property has benefited from a rather constant management where agriculture, forestry, landscape and hunting have traditionally played an important role. Though, the landscape has evolved a lot for the last two centuries. Major changes occurred in the XIXth century where several small woods were planted (often with hybrid poplars, spruces, larches) and some meadows were drained. Some of those small meadows were later afforested (late XIXth or early XXth century). Only a part of the woods were mapped as woodland on the Count de Ferraris’ map (1760’s). [Published: 2016]

The overall audit assessment for the present management plan is very positive. The large, coordinated landowner involvement is unique. The systematic work with the whole watercourse is very important and basically hard to achieve, but accomplished here. The continuous monitoring of both biodiversity and water chemistry is good. The intention to expand the approach is promising; especially to include biodiversity around the river is promising. The recognition of the cultural heritage in the landscape is a plus as well as the willingness to communicate what the project is doing and its results. The Tullstorp Stream project is situated in a much exploited landscape and therefore serves as a very important example of what can be done in such landscapes to make it much more attractive and well-functioning.
