A heath is a type of shrub land in which low lying woody plants are supported by the free draining and usually sandy acidic soils. The habitat is found throughout the world however in Europe, the heaths are disappearing and are now considered rare. All throughout the world, particularly birds are to be found. In the European heathland, Montagu’s Harrier and the Tree Pipit may be found, whereas in the widespread heathland of Australia, Honey Eaters may be found living along side eagles and emus as well that the only terrestrial mammal that eats nectar, the Honey Possum.
Heathland Created By Human Activity
Across the world, areas of heathland have been created as a consequence of human activity. Forest and woodlands that have been cleared by grazing of animals or by deliberate fire setting, have developed into heaths. Sometimes the heathland further degenerates into a sandy environment. Unfortunately in high temperatures, the sandy earth can hold a lot of heat, creating the risk of further fire.
Conservation Of Heathlands
Today, many heath lands are protected by conservation measures. They can be conserved by grazing and burning but many areas are threatened by housing developments and the recolonisation by trees that are not necessarily a reflection of the natural vegetation prior to the formation of the heathland.
