Another in the popular New Naturalist series, this book will cover all aspects of the natural history of Ireland, from biological history, geology and climate, through to nature conservation.
David Cabot, an expert in his field, provides a comprehensive view of all the different types of habitats 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 Natural History of 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 fascinating and highly detailed study, this book will complement other published works on the natural history of England, Wales and Scotland.
A propos de l'auteur:
Dr David Cabot has been involved with nature in Ireland for the last forty years, initially at Trinity College, Dublin, then at the University of Galway and then in numerous government positions, culminating in being the special adviser to the Irish Prime Minister.
