About this book

Provides a comprehensive study of wildlife conservation in Britain, concentrating on events in the last 30 years. Initial chapters consider the political and institutional development of nature conservation and review the physical and biological nature of Britain, its geology, climate and wildlife habitats. Following chapters cover the demise of habitats and species, how to manage these losses and the techniques used to survey and monitor the integration of environmental policies in industries from agriculture to forestry and fisheries. Marren ends by evaluating the role of the media, weighing up the successes and failures of the conservation movement, and looking at what the future holds.
