About this title:

Synopsis: The Firth of Forth combines a rich wildlife with a history of long and intense human activity around its shores and in its waters. At one time, herring, cod and haddock, with many other edible fish, were vastly more numerous, but seals and seabirds much rarer than they are now. Once, the rivers running into the Firth were so polluted that people could set fire to some of the burns; now the water is often as pure as it has ever been since records began. Illustrated with black-and-white and colour photographs, this is a capitivating exploration into the life of the Firth of Forth which considers a wide range of questions. How have people affected and exploited the wildlife, and how in turn has it determined the lives of people? What changes to the biodiversity of the Firth have taken place as a result of human interference? Why has pollution been easier to control than over-fishing? What were the unintended consequences to the natural heritage both of pollution and of cleaning-up, and what role has conservation had in bringing about changes? This paperback book has 240 pages and measures 16.1 x 2 x 24cm

Review: 'Painstakingly researched and deeply engrossing' --The Scotsman

'A very absorbing read: every estuary should have one!' --Scottish Wildlife Magazine

'A fascinating study with a broad, judicious sweep and tone' --Reviews in History
