Description :

Language: English . Brand New Book. Moorland makes up the largest single vegetation type in the United Kingdom. It is internationally important culturally and nationally valuable for agriculture, conservation and field sports. Over the past half-century, many aspects have been subjected to detailed scientific study so the scale and depth of knowledge about this area is greater than ever before. However, as mans understanding has increased, management standards have tended to decline in many places and there are fewer people living in the uplands with the knowledge and skills necessary to make the moorland system work properly in practice and on a sustainable basis. In Moorland Management John Phillips draws together proven expertise and management tactics for the benefit of those responsible for this wonderful land-type to carry forward into the twenty-first century.

Synopsis : 'Moorland' in all its many forms makes up the largest single vegetation type in the United Kingdom. It is internationally important, whilst being culturally and nationally valuable for agriculture, conservation and field sports. However, as Man's understanding has increased, through detailed scientific study over the past half century, management standards have tended to decline in many places. There are fewer people living in the uplands with the understanding and skills needed to make the moorland system work on a sustainable basis. In Moorland Management John Phillips draws together proven expertise, management tactics and information on politics, public bodies, the survival of heather, bracken control, restoration, winter browning and more for the benefit of those responsible for this wonderful land-type to carry on forward into the twenty-first century.

Critique: ...a comprehensive and practical guide that covers the sustainability and practicalities for managing moorland...This book will be very welcome to those who are inexperienced in moorland management. The book is detailed and thorough enough for even the most experienced to gain some additional nuggets of knowledge. --NGO Keeping the Balance

There is no doubt that the scope of the book covers everything a moorland manager should be thinking about and as it draws on a lifetime of experience, the book is authoritative. --The Heather Trust Annual Report

Comprehensive and practical... beautifully presented and illustrated throughout. --Countryman's Weekly

'Not so much comprehensive as a bible. This is a substantial work from the founder of the Heather Trust, a man who has pretty much devoted his life to grouse and moorland... packed with information and detail on the given subject matter. Beautifully illustrated too with good use of Jason Lowes' paintings. Fieldsports
