Covering all aspects of the natural history of Ireland, from biological history, geology and climate, through to nature and conservation, the author provides a comprehensive view of all different types of habitat to be found in Ireland, as well as the rich variety of flora and fauna which live there. In the NEW NATURALIST series.
David Cabot, an expert in his field, provides a comprehensive view of all the different types of habitat to be found in Ireland, from the peatlands and fens, to the mountains and uplands; from broad-leaved woodland to coastal zones. The book examines the history and ecology of each of these habitats, and describes the rich variety of flora and fauna to be found living there. In "The New Naturalist: Ireland" David Cabot also discusses the issue of nature conservation, addressing the history of the conservation movement in Ireland - its successes and failures - and the needs for the future. A highly detailed study, this book should complement other published works on the natural history of England, Wales and Scotland.
