About this book

Complete your New Naturalist collection with Harper Collins's facsimile versions, which are printed on demand. Northumberland was first published in 2004.

Drawing on his extensive knowledge and experience of the region, Angus Lunn gives a comprehensive account of several types of habitats and geographical areas, including woodlands, the Kielder Forest, moorlands, other inland terrestrial habitats such as montane and limestone habitats and lowland mires, rivers, lakes, reservoirs and ponds, and the coast. Northumberland examines the history and ecology of each of these habitats, and describes the rich variety of flora and fauna to be found living there.

Illustrated with over 100 black-and-white line drawings and photographs, plus a colour photograph section, this is a comprehensive guide to an area of great natural history and interest.

"exhaustively researched [...] an impressively detailed compendium of Northumberland's ecological history, geology and climate."
Morpeth Herald

"a glimpse at the sheer quantity of detail contained on the pages of this book soon makes it plain that this is a thoroughly comprehensive survey of the county's natural history."
The Northumbrian

"essential reading for the informed naturalist [...] refreshingly satisfying."
