About this book

This handbook brings together habitat management advice for all native UK reptiles. The half dozen species here have experienced population declines, and are now all Biodiversity Action Plan priorities.

The book is aimed at site managers, and those who advise on management. It gives advice for a range of settings, from dedicated nature reserves to farmland and includes a useful appendix of Environmental Stewardship options. The text is backed up by full colour photos showing typical habitat examples and species behaviour and will appeal to anyone interested in the herpetofauna of the UK and Europe.
