About this book

Complete your New Naturalist collection with Harper Collins's facsimile versions, which are printed on demand. The Hebrides was first published in 1990. Please note that the colour plate section of the original has here been reproduced in black-and-white.

The Hebrides is an area of great natural beauty, which draws back thousands of visitors year after year to its wonderful scenery and abundant wildlife. Yet, until now, there has been no up-to-date, complete natural history for its many followers to refer to. This title fills the gap.

In a style at once both readable and informative the Drs. J. M. and I. L. Boyd cover every aspect of the islands. Starting with a clear explanation of the geology, climate and hydrography, they move on to a fascinating description of the many varies habitats, from the sea and inland waters through to woodlands and moor and hill. Part II deals with the characteristics of individual islands and their species, while in part III the islands are discussed in the context of their relation to people – starting with the old naturalists, and ending on a topical note with the current interest in conservation.
