Current woodland conservation policy stresses the importance to preserve, expand and re-connect habitat fragments on a landscape scale. However, Dolman and Fuller (2003) suggest that more studies are necessary on woodland specialists species to provide a firmer basis for current management strategies. To address this knowledge gap, research was undertaken on a specialist woodland invertebrate, the wood cricket (Nemobius sylvestris) on the Isle of Wight, UK. In 2005, a landscape scale survey and in 2006 a more detailed study within 3 separate woodland fragments was undertaken. The results of both studies were used to assess the relevance of a landscape scale approach for conservation effort of this species.
