This new edition offers a comprehensive and clear guide to the law on nature conservation throughout Great Britain. Essential reading for anyone with an interest in nature conservation, this book takes account of the significant legislation changes that have taken place in both Scotland and England since the last edition. As well as detailed coverage of the rules on species protection and habitat conservation, the book examines the various legal approaches to conservation, the many authorities concerned and their duties in relation to biodiversity. The author’s consideration of the effect on conservation of related areas of law such as town and country planning, environmental assessment, forestry, agriculture and GMOs makes this a vital reference guide for legal practitioners involved in planning, environmental and agricultural matters, as well as land owners, nature conservation professionals, estate managers and students of nature conservation law.
