The Cairngorms area is arguably the most significant for nature conservation in Britain, and contains its largest National Park.
In this book, 35 authors have drawn from a wealth of published and unpublished sources, to present an up-to-date review of the area's nationally and internationally important plants, animals, habitats, geology and landforms.
The review falls into three parts. The first and largest part describes the area's rich diversity of nature, and summarises recent research findings, trends and conservation issues. The second part considers deer management, recreation and projected climate change impacts. Part three focuses on rare and threatened species, and identifies areas and habitats rich in species for which the Cairngorms are nationally and internationally important.
The book presents a huge amount of new and previously unpublished information, and sets a new standard for assessing the importance of National Parks.
