9780007160686: Wye Valley (Collins New Naturalist)

The spectacular landscape of the Wye Valley region has attracted visitors for more than two centuries. Picturesque with valleys and limestone scenery, it is one of the few lowland regions deemed an Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This insightful resource examines the diverse ecology, natural history, landscape, and history of the district. The study shows how despite recent conservation efforts in the region many natural habitats and wild species have suffered substantial losses. Comprehensive and thorough, this is an informative look at one of Britain’s most lovely locations.

'This is a beautiful book, written with love and enthusiasm and clarity, and produced to the New Naturalist's highest standards, with an evocative jacket design by Robert Gillmor.' Oliver Rackham, British Wildlife 'More like a work of scholarship than a conventional guidebook, this is an impressive and hugely detailed examination of the ecology, natural history and landscape of this spectacular region.' Sunday Telegraph 'The definitive guide to one of Britain's most unspoilt rivers ! the introduction is impressive and lyrical, the descriptions of the river and its valley beautiful.' BBC Wildlife 'Wye Valley embodies everything that is good about the New Naturalist series ! an outstanding volume in an illustrious series. It is written with clarity and verve, which makes it a pleasure to read.' Natur Cymru

Book Description Collins, London, 2008. Hard Cover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. First Edition. FIRST EDITION. Still in publisher's shrinkwrap. Illustrated, pp xii, 466, an excellent copy in dustwrapper. [The spectacular landscape of the Wye Valley region has attracted visitors for over 250 years. Designated one of the few lowland Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1971, it is dominated by the river Wye, which has done much to form this varied ecological landscape. George Peterken (who has lived in the region for many years and helped to draft the AONB's Nature Conservation Strategy in 1999), skillfully examines the diverse ecology, natural history, landscape and history of this district defined mainly by the extraordinary evolution of the river Wye into a meandering mature river. With little previously published on the area, Peterken also explores the results of recent conservation efforts in the region, recognising that despite the protection afforded to the 'outstanding natural beauty' of natural habitats and wild species, these regions have continued to suffer substantial losses.].
