Authoritative, lavishly illustrated, and beautifully designed, this photographic ID of Britain’s flora and fauna will captivate nature enthusiasts of every age and ability. From golden eagles in the Scottish Highlands to Portuguese Man ‘o’ War jellyfish off the coast of Cornwall, Britain boasts an astonishing array of wildlife and habitat – and in this photographic tour, DK invites you to explore its extraordinary beauty, diversity, and wonder from the comfort of your living room. Habitat by habitat, British wildlife is revealed, and changes to the seasons are uncovered.
Profiles of trees, flowers and plants, fungi, insects, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, invertebrates, fish, and birds provide key information on when and where to experience animals and plants in the flesh and at their best, while hundreds of spectacular photographs offer visual prompts to identification by showing them in their natural environments. An outstanding reference for the whole family – and the perfect armchair companion on days when you cannot get out and about – Wildlife of Britain and Ireland is a glorious visual testimony to the extraordinary scope and depth of the wildlife of the British Isles.
