    Vom Höhlenbau der Spechte profitieren weitere Tierarten, die solche Quartiere gerne für sich nutzen. Dazu gehört die in der Eifel als gefährdet eingestufte Hohltaube (Columba oenas) ebenso wie verschiedene waldbewohnende Fledermausarten, die allesamt in ihrem Bestand z. T. stark gefährdet und deshalb gesetzlich geschützt sind.

    His lyrics for Led Zeppelin were oddly eco-friendly—odes to ice, snow, trees, and England’s sylvan beauty (several songs were inspired by “The Lord of the Rings”)—and, in retrospect, his singing, which often sounded distinctly un-Western, seemed to anticipate the globalization of pop.

    The park is also part jungle, what we always called the "wilderness". This was five acres of sylvan mystery and romance, a bastion of trees rising up along the northern boundary and defending the park's nether reaches from the toffee-nosed terrors of St John's Wood.
    Comments welcome. I came upon this English word only very recently.

    Ecology: More hygrophilous than the other species of Bradycellus. A silvicolous species which is mainly recorded from woodland abutting acid heath or where drainage of lowland raised bog by agricultural improvement or turf-cutting has allowed birch seedlings to become established to form oligotrophic, acid woodland.

    The true katydids make up the subfamily Pseudophyllinae. Those in the genus Pterophylla, are the true katydids of eastern North America. The sylvan katydids of Panama are also pseudophyllinids (see video). The 50-plus species are generally large and mimic a variety of botanical forms, including bark and leaves—both living and dead. ...

    Jetzt ist ein Eintrag für "sylvan" vorhanden: Dictionary: sylvan , mit "waldig" als einziger Übersetzung. Der scheint neu zu sein, denn ich hatte den englischen Begriff vor ein paar Tagen nicht in LEO gefunden.
