About this book

This beautifully illustrated mini field guide is packed with information on more than 190 species of animal and plant that inhabit still-water bodies such as ponds, pools and small lakes in northern Europe. A vast number of species occurs in these habitats, so New Holland Concise Pond Wildlife Guide is selective, but it pictures and describes a good range of fauna and flora that are likely to be found and identified.

Among the fascinating animals featured are freshwater sponges, hydras, water bears, worms, leeches, water snails, dragonflies and damselflies, frogs and toads, bats, fish, birds, and iconic mammals such as the Water Vole and European Otter.

All the species are illustrated with superb full-colour artworks, and a concise written account for each covers data such as size, general description, habitat, ecology, and distribution in Britain and the near Continent. The easy-to-follow layouts and superb artworks aid quick and accurate identification, making New Holland Concise Pond Wildlife Guide an indispensable reference in the field as well as in the home and garden.

Compact enough to fit in the pocket and packed with essential information, New Holland Concise Pond Wildlife Guide is additionally wrapped in a durable plastic wallet to protect it against the elements in the field. Also included is a fold-out insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing comparisons between species.
