Certain cultural landscapes have been identified as ‘High Nature Value’ (HNV) – areas that support high species and habitat diversity, or species of conservation concern. It has been suggested that HNV landscapes favour certain species because their management mimics natural disturbance processes. In the face of declines in HNV farming it has therefore been suggested that “rewilding” – restoring natural disturbance processes – could be a valuable tool for conserving HNV species. I tested this idea by examining whether flood-disturbed systems provide suitable habitat for HNV species in the Pripyat-Stokhid National Nature Park in Ukraine.
