A definitive natural history of Northumberland, from its ecological history, geology and climate to its naturalists and conservation issues. Drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience of the region, Angus Lunn gives a comprehensive account of several types of habitats and geographical areas, including woodlands, the Kielder Forest, moorlands, other inland terrestrial habitats such as montane and limestone habitats and lowland mires, rivers, lakes, reservoirs and ponds, and the coast. The book examines the history and ecology of each of these habitats, and describes the rich variety of flora and fauna to be found living there. Illustrated with over 100 black-and-white line drawings and photographs, plus a colour plate section, this is a comprehensive guide to an area of great natural history and interest.
