About this book

Please note, this is a reissue of the New Holland Concise Garden Wildlife Guide, formerly on the natural history list of New Holland publishers.

This mini guide covers more than 220 species that live in northern European gardens. It includes all the most common earthworms, molluscs, crustaceans, insects, arachnids, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals found here, and is invaluable for anyone wanting to find out more about the fascinating creatures frequenting our gardens. All the species are illustrated with superb full-colour artworks, and a concise written account for each covers 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 Bloomsbury Concise Garden Wildlife Guide an indispensable reference in the field as well as at home. It is compact enough to fit in the pocket, yet packed with essential information for the nature enthusiast.

To protect it against the elements in the field, Bloomsbury Concise Garden Wildlife Guide is wrapped in a durable plastic wallet. Also included is a foldout insert with at-a-glance illustrations showing comparisons between similar-looking species.
