Rivers - The British Wildlife Collection No. 3
RRP - £35.00 - you save £5.00
A new, definitive study of a subject that has never been more topical. Britain's rivers are beautiful, varied and essential, yet as we see with increasing frequency if mismanaged they can be hugely destructive. From a general introduction to river-types and to their development and history in Britain, to a detailed analytical comparison of three examples - the Meon, Dee and Endrick - this book examines the incredibly varied ecosystem of rivers as a whole, both throughout history and in the troubled present, and the vast range of creatures who live in, around and above the water.
This is a work of accessible scholarship and essential reading for serious conservationist and interested layman alike.
