THEY breed like rabbits’ may derive from this small mammal’s proficient reproductive cycle—a doe can give birth to a litter of up to 12 kits one day, get pregnant the next and produce more young within a month—but, in recent years, numbers of Oryctolagus cuniculus have dwindled. Rather than celebrating the demise of the farmers’ foe—thought to have been introduced by the Romans, but now attributed to the Normans, who constructed warrens, guarded by warreners, to protect the precious coneys that provided fresh meat, fur and skins—we should be concerned by how patchy populations will affect the delicate balance of Nature. As they tunnelled out of those warrens and colonised the wider countryside, rabbits became more common, but they were still valuable and anyone caught poaching them was liable to have body…

Born to be wild BILLIONS of bees, bugs and butterflies could be saved if better legal protection was extended to wildflower meadows, says Plantlife. Highly concerned at the vulnerability of these spaces, 97% of which have been lost since the 1930s, the charity is campaigning for 120,000 hectares (nearly 300,000 acres) of grassland to be restored by 2043. Wildflower meadows, on which some 1,400 species of pollinators rely, contain nearly half of all the UK’s flora, yet occupy only 1% of its land. ‘It’s a scandal that there is no national inventory of meadows to sit alongside our Ancient Woodland Inventory,’ laments Plantlife botanist Trevor Dines. ‘Until meadows are identified, they remain at greatest risk.’ New Plantlife research reveals that, if our meadowland is not maintained, 40% of its plants will suffer within a…

Slipping on a banana skin Some 300 banana skins are discarded by hikers on Ben Nevis every week, taking two years to decompose and harming the ecosystem. Last year, the mountain received 160,000 visitors Old-fashioned gifts We’re running out of frankincense. The aromatic resin enjoys high demand in the West, but there haven’t been any healthy young Boswellia trees in decades. Production could be halved in 20 years Cheshire cheese Makers say they need something akin to Wallace and Gromit to boost the cheese’s decreasing popularity Insects We’ll soon be eating them, say Italian scientists.

THE lime tree was vast, but we were aware of its intoxicating scent long before we saw it. Up close, it rose like a cathedral nave. The whole of the great tree shivered with great multitudes of bees and butterflies feasting on the nectar. As a boy, at the start of the summer holiday, I used to lie under the canopy of heart-shaped leaves of the lime tree in our garden and let the murmuring of the insects and the heady perfume wash away the previous term. Limes were once the most common tree in lowland Britain and have a multitude of uses, from coppicing to making string from the fibres of the bark. Gardeners love it, as it can be attractively pleached and woven into hedges. The creamy-white timber is…
