Western Europe has a wide range of heathers and moorland, with Great Britain and Ireland having optimum conditions for the full development of heather. Scotland has a mixture of blanket bogs, wet heathers and moorland scapes shaped by burning and other sorts of management mainly for red grouse, hill sheep and red deer. This text celebrates these landscapes - their history, habitats, wildlife and beauty. It also incorporates the ecologist Professor Charles H. Gimingham, to develop the study of heaths and moorland. The team of 72 authors covers topics such as the nature of the dynamic ecological and landscape processes, land management, and conservation for the future.
