Life in and Around an Ancient Tree (poster)

This poster describes a scene of an ancient tree with some of our rarest deadwood loving species including bats, birds, beetles, fungi, lichen and mosses and the parts of a tree they call home. Excellent for demonstrating habitats and microhabitats within a tree. Species highlighted are some of the rarest in the UK and priority species for conservation. This poster was created as part of the Back from the Brink Ancients of the Future project which aims to bring 28 rare species back from the brink of extinction.
