Abstract [en]

Roadsides in Sweden offer suitable habitats for species that naturally occur in the old agricultural landscape, a habitat that is less common today. These species are favored by small-scale disturbance such as of mowing which is to some extent applied in roadsides for management of the road surface. The Swedish Transport Administration has worked according to the environmental directives for sustainable populations of threatened species that occur along roadsides. Roadsides with threatened species and species that represent the old agriculture landscape have been located and described. Such roadsides have been named species rich roadsides (artrik vägkant) and can be found in different environments spread across the country. The Swedish Transport Administration has developed recommendations for special management to support species of old agricultural landscape in roadsides. Previous studies have shown a negative development of the species rich roadsides, with reduced numbers of species rich roadsides.  This project has analyzed whether there is a relationship between the management of species rich roadsides and the negative development of species rich roadsides, and also make recommendations for improving management methods needed for improving the development of species rich roadsides. Data have been used from previous inventories of species rich roadsides, the study area restricted to Region Mitt.  The present management of species rich roadsides has a significant negative effect of the development of species rich roadsides. To improve the development of species rich roadsides, management must be adapted to the environment the roadside is located to.
