A Less Green and Pleasant Land: Our Threatened Wildlife

by Norman Maclean
£16.99   paperback  Cambridge University Press (2015)

A Less Green and Pleasant Land: Our Threatened Wildlife by Norman Maclean Disentangling the facts from the hype, this 'Domesday book' of the British and Irish countryside offers a definitive and up-to-date survey of the state of our wildlife today.
Norman Maclean, editor of the bestselling Silent Summer, examines the latest findings of Britain and Ireland's top wildlife experts and interprets them for a wider audience. Each chapter provides reliable estimates of animal populations, showing which species are thriving and which are in decline. The book also considers the effects of climate change on our wildlife and how human population growth is influencing its development.
Beautifully illustrated with colour plates and wood engravings throughout, this accessible and timely study reveals just how rapidly our countryside and its wildlife are changing, why we should be concerned, and what we can do about it.
* Provides a definitive audit of the state of British and Irish wildlife across the board
* Discusses the reasons behind changes in animal populations and what can be done about them
* Written in a jargon-free style that will engage anyone interested in wildlife and conservation
