About this book

Dr J M Boyd and Dr I Boyd
The Hebrides are renowned as an area of outstanding natural beauty, visited by thousands of people each year. This is the first natural history of the region to be published. The authors explain the islands' geology, climate, hydrography and soils, and describe the different habitats, from sea to moorland. The second part of the book looks at the individual islands and their species, whilst the third and final section discusses the islands in the context of their relation to people - starting with the old naturalists and ending with current conservation issues.
