A research project undertaken by David Clements in collaboration with Dr Keith Alexander to investigate the invertebrate faunas of hedgerows of differing ages and modes of origin, as part of the 20-year-long Shapwick Archaeological Project run by Professor Mick Aston (University of Bristol) and Dr Chris Gerrard (University of Durham) (English Heritage 2002).  The project found clear links between the documentary or archaeologically-determined age of the hedgerow and the presence and distribution of ancient woodland indicator and woodland-associated invertebrate species.
