9780007174010: Galloway and the Borders (Collins New Naturalist)

Another volume in the widely-read "New Naturalist" series, this book is an in-depth study of the natural developments and history of Galloway and surrounding areas. Often overlooked due to the reputation of natural habitat in other parts of the country, the author here conveys the diversity and magnificence of nature in the south of Scotland. Galloway and the borders is an extremely varied region, from saltmarshes and shingle beaches to rocky islands and seabird stations. The wide range of hills, displaying a wealth of rich colours, give the area its dominant character. The varied selection of flora and fauna only add to the diversity.

About the Author:

Derek Ratcliffe made his career in the Nature Conservancy, becoming Chief Scientist in 1973, a post he held until his retirement in 1989. He was widely recognised as one of the leading naturalists and conservationists in the UK, and was an active member of the New Naturalist editorial board. He died suddenly on May 23rd, 2005.

Review:

/ 'A testament to the profound understanding that the author had of this corner of the world.' BBC Wildlife / '!a magical and detailed guide to the natural history of this 'unexpected Eden' in Scotland.' Country Homes & Interiors / 'This excellent addition to the New Naturalist series seems certain to become the definitive reference for those with a love of Southern Scotland and its natural history.' Scottish Bird News / 'One of Britain's greatest field naturalists describes in detail that broad "chest" of upland country that lies just south of Scotland's slender neck between Edinburgh and Glasgow ! the fluency of his style and his massive expertise in upland ecology draw out its huge beauty, wildlife riches and the perennial impact of humans upon its diverse landscapes' Mark Cocker, The Guardian
