Starting with an explanation of the geology, climate and hydrography and soils of the Hebridean Islands, the authors move on to a description of the many different habitats, from the sea and inland waters to woodlands and moors and hills. Part 2 deals with individual islands and their species and in Part 3 the islands are discussed in the context of their relation to people - starting with the old naturalists, and ending with current interest in conservation. The book is a result of many years of research combined with a passion for the area.
