Rivers - The British Wildlife Collection No. 3
By Nigel Holmes & Paul Raven

rivers

Only £30.00 (post free UK) - RRP £35.00 see here for further information

Rivers, volume three in the British Wildlife Collection, is 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.
