Ein Buch das nicht mehr mit dem Windhund zu tun hat als das Thema "Natur mal pur"
oder so manches andere Thema über die Inseln. Trotzdem soll es hier im Bücherschrank
Platz finden für die Naturbegeisterten unter uns.   

ZitatVegetation of Britain and Ireland
by Michael Proctor


Another volume in the popular New Naturalist Series, this book covers all aspects of the
plant life of Britain and Ireland. Michael Proctor, an expert in his field, discusses the
development of the landscape of Britain and Ireland from prehistoric times, including
the influence of people and their agricultural practices on the vegetation.

He provides a comprehensive account of all the different types of plant habitat in Britain
and Ireland: from woodlands and scrubland to meadows and grasslands, from wetlands
and peatlands to heaths, and from the mountain vegetation to the sea coast. He
examines the history and ecology of each of these habitats, and describes the rich
variety of flora found living there.

Michael Proctor concludes with an account of the changes to our landscape which have
taken place during the twentieth century, and prospects for the future, including the
effects of environmental change. Michael Proctor is the author of the popular Natural
History of Pollination, in the same series.
