Recent changes in land use have caused widespread alteration in the amount and configuration of woodland habitat in Britain. Detailed vegetation data collected during repeated field surveys of Great Britain exist but wider spatial and historical context is needed to fully investigate how the configuration of remaining woodland has influenced species and trait composition. This study combines a number of data sources using GIS to determine the age and spatial characteristics of woodland patches. Ongoing analysis will quantify the effects of these factors on woodland plant species composition within habitat patches.
