About this book

Complete your New Naturalist collection with Harper Collins's facsimile versions, which are printed on demand. IrelandA Natural History was first published in 1999.

Another volume in the popular New Naturalist series, Ireland covers all aspects of the natural history of Ireland, from biological history, geology and climate, through to nature conservation.

David Cabot, an expert in his field, provides a comprehensive view of all the different types of habitats to be found in Ireland, from the peatlands and fens, to the mountains and uplands; from broad-leaved woodland to coastal zones. Ireland examines the history and ecology of each of these habitats, and describes the rich variety of flora and fauna to be found living there.

In Ireland David Cabot also discusses the issue of nature conservation, addressing the history of the conservation movement in Ireland – its successes and failures – and the needs for the future.

A fascinating and highly detailed study, this book will complement other published works on the natural history of England, Wales and Scotland.

"Ireland is a monumental, near-definitive natural history of this country [...] a valuable, scientifically-based, professionally-indexed and accessible study [...]"
The Irish Times

"An outstanding reference work as well as a compendium of fascinating detail. It deserves an honoured place on the library shelves of every home and school"
Sunday Independent Dublin
