Wytham Woods comprises almost 400 ha of temperate broadleaf woodland which has been owned by the University of Oxford since the 1940s. The woodland community is diverse and variable in both the ground flora and tree species composition and structure.
The UK climate has relatively mild winters and cool summers. Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year while January is the coldest month and July the warmest. The mean annual rainfall is 726 mm, and mean annual radiation is 118 W/m2.
Access is by walking from the Oxford University John Krebs Field Station in Wytham, or by (limited, permit holder-only) car access through Wytham village.
