9780002190206: Heathlands (Collins New Naturalist)

This is a book to enhance every heathland visit – whether you are a serious naturalist – or simply want to enrich you understanding of the countryside. This edition is exclusive to newnaturalists.com

'Britain is unique in Europe in having such a wide range of heathland communities, and in the eyes of many, the wide open spaces - often beautified by heather and gorse - are the most remarkable feature of our countryside.'

Our lowland heaths are a vital and precious habit, an absorbing area of study for every naturalist, with some of Britain's most appealing - and endangered - plants and animals, such as the Marsh Gentian, the Dartford Warbler, the Sand Lizard and Silver-studded Blue butterfly. They are the site of many of our most important Nature Reserves, and at the same time provide eminently accessible countryside, attracting millions of visitors each year.

This is a book to enhance every heathland visit - whether you are a serious naturalist - or simply want to enrich you understanding of the countryside. Nigel Webb may be a leading authority on heathland ecology - but he tells the extraordinary story of how heathlands came to be, the influences of geology, climate, soils and man, and how the plants and animals survive and function - with tremendous clarity and insight. He gives a most rewarding and complete picture of the natural history of lowland heaths which will certainly satisfy the growing need to know and understand the balance of nature - so that we can preserve it for the future.

Book Description Collins, London, 1986. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Hardback edition. This is the ''Book Club'' edition which differs from the Collins edition by not having ''Collins'' at the bottom of dustwrapper spine, and has no price inside. Otherwise the same. Some discolouration to the unclipped dustwrapper due to the book having been kept on a shelf near a peat fire, similar browning to the top and bottom edges of green boards, also to the page edges. Otherwise a good tight copy of this later volume (number 72) in the publisher's ''New Naturalist'' series. This one looks at the plants, animals and ecology of British lowland heathland. 223pp, 23 colour illustrations, 51 b&w diagrams, also some b&w illustration in the text. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 008357
