The Cairngorms are arguably the most significant area for nature conservatism in the British Isles. In The Nature Of The Cairngorms: Diversity in a changing environment over 30 authors have drawn from a wealth of published and unpublished sources to present an up-to-date review of the significance of the area’s natural features, focussing mainly on those features they consider to be nationally or internationally important.
The review falls into three parts, the first of which describes important elements in the Cairngorms, notably its geology, landforms, landscapes, habitats and main species groups. Each character describes recent research findings, trends and conservation issues for the landform, habitat or species group in question, and identifies areas particularly rich in these features. The second part assesses the nature of change, assessing the scale and consequences of climate change, deer management and recreation. Part three identifies habitats and areas rich in species for which the Cairngorms are nationally important.
