- Abstract in English : Due to changes in agricultural politics, the area of woodland will increase considerably, in Europe. The significance of woodland edges is raising as well. The various functions that woodland edge can perform depend on width, structure, species composition and dynamics at the site and landscape levels. Edges have the potential to serve multi purpose objectives in agricultural landscape, and also to be of value for agriculture, nature conservation, and amenity. Management guidelines should move from a single interest focus to an integration of functions.
