This new title in the Crossbill Guides Series covers Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, the two easternmost Canary Islands. Lanzarote and Fuerteventura only recently became known to the general public as a winter destination for sun seekers. However, these islands, with their odd mix of Volcanic and Saharan-style desert landscapes, support a wonderful flora and fauna - especially birds - many of which occur nowhere else in Europe (or even the world) but here. As any Crossbill Guide, the Canary Islands Vol. 1 - Lanzarote and Fuerteventura guide gives detailed route descriptions (9 in total) and site descriptions (about 10) for naturalists throughout both islands, covering the best sites for birdwatching, finding wildflowers, dragonflies and butterflies, seeing marine life and the most remarkable geological sites. It also gives detailed information on tracking down the evolutionary processes that shaped the unique ecology of these isolated Atlantic Islands. This information comes with extensive descriptions of the ecology, geology, history and flora and fauna of Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

Book Description Crossbill Guides Foundation, Arnhem, 2014. Condition: New. 176, col illus. 210x150mm. PB. NEW. . Lanzarote and Fuerteventura, the two easternmost Canary Islands, are very different from the rest of the archipelago. With their odd cross of volcanic and Saharan-style landscapes, they form a special destination one where you can find birds and other animals that occur nowhere else in Europe or even the world.Unexpected perhaps for these dry islands, there is beautiful flora to explore, while the ocean itself is inviting for snorkelling or watching dolphins and seabirds. With this guidebook you ll discover that Lanzarote and Fuerteventura have much more to offer than just sun and beaches. [9789491648045]. Seller Inventory # N27930
