About this book

The Natural History of Connemara is the first book lo describe in detail the natural treasures of this remarkable region in the west of Ireland. An area of contrasting landscapes and ever-changing skies; where grey rocky mountains sweep down to an immense wilderness of blanket bog, sandy coastal grassland and sheltered, seaweed-fringed bays; where Atlantic waves pound the exposed headlands and cliff-girt oftshore islands.

Tom Whilde traces the history of Connemara from its beginnings in an ancient ocean, through times of forested valleys and hills, to today's man-made landscape, He describes the geology, landscape history and climate, discusses in detail the plants and animals that inhabit the mountains, bogs, woodlands, lakes, rivers, seashore and islands and writes passionately of the need to conserve this unique Irish landscape and its wildlite.

The Natural History of Connemara is illustrated with maps, diagrams, line-drawings and over 100 colour photographs. many by the author. It provides a species list in English, Latin and Irish, a comprehensive bibliography of nearly 1000 references and a register of names and addresses of organisations which may inlluence the future welfare of the region.
