Owner's name and small label to front end-paper. Very good in slightly spine-tanned dust-wrapper. Though "man-made, hedges are in effect long thin strips of woodland, a network across Britain of hidden pathways and refuge for much of our native wildlife. Secrecy and cover: hence surely the appeal of hedges even for children. But the interest of hedges lies also in their history, which is also that of our post-Bronze Age landscape and rural society, and in their central importance to the ecology of the British countryside." The history of the hedge as commentary on the history of Britain and its peoples. Chapters include; History - what is a hedge, early hedges; enclosure by act and award; the recent landscape; the present position; Flora - the flora; dating a hedge; the origin and development of the shrub flora; some hedgerow plants; Fauna - birds; mammals; amphibia and reptiles; invertebrates; the farmer's hedge - shelter; pests and beneficial insects; management; costs. Past, present and future. As usual with the New Naturalist series, essential reading. Bookseller Inventory # 31678
