Golden eagles and Ireland’s uplands crisis
Shows how important getting the fundamentals right. Also, deforested uplands are not so easy to reafforest with native woodland because the ground has been exposed to leaching for hundreds of not thousands of years which has resulted on poorer more degraded soils http://www.irishtimes.com/news/environment/golden-eagles-and-ireland-s-uplands-crisis-1.2489767#.VpOReJ0aahg.facebook
