RSPB Review of Grouse Moor Management

The full title of the review is: The costs and benefits of grouse moor management to biodiversity and aspects of the wider environment and it is available to download.

The covering e-mail that announced the publication of the review states:
"In recognition of the need to understand the value of grouse management, the RSPB has undertaken a review of the scientific evidence on the environmental consequences of grouse moor management.  Through the review, we seek to set out an objective view of the current state of our knowledge on the impact of grouse moor management, considering the scientific evidence for both beneficial and detrimental effects of the associated management on biodiversity and ecosystem services."

Although clearly well-researched, at first sight this is pretty dry reading and I am not sure that it takes us any further forward.
