Natural vegetationThe plant cover of a region occurring under natural conditions. In the British Isles man has destroyed or modified almost all the natural vegetation, which in most areas would consist of the type of broad-leaved woodland called deciduous summer forest. Some of the typical birds of this vegetation type have adapted to the man-made environment to become familiar suburban inhabitants, for example Robin Erithacus rubecula and the Blackbird Turdus merula.
