About this book

Inter-disciplinary study by environmental historians, archaeologists, ecologists, biologists and nature conservationists.
`This study consists of nine papers from a conference held in 1996 on the theme of Introductions and Extinctions since the Ice Age. They form an interesting blend of history, ecology and archaeology, including a reconstruction of life at Skara Brae, the Stone Age settlement in Orkney, accounts of the Great Auk, Beaver and Basking Shark, and a fascinating review of plant extinctions in Scotland by Phil Lusby, who is emerging as one of the most interesting writers on native plants. Peter Marren, British Wildlife
