About this book

Practical introduction to observing, understanding and studying the natural world. Gerald and Lee Durrell's The Amateur Naturalist was first published in 1982 and quickly became a classic. Based on this concept and matching their contagious enthusiasm, Nick Baker focuses on how to find animals in the field, by locating and interpreting tracks and signs and listening for sounds. With information provided on how to get started, the book then discusses how to choose the necessary equipment, kit and clothing. It gives profiles of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, fish and insects, and contains an introduction to plants and trees.

Please note that a paperback version of this title does exists and it is titled The First-Time Naturalist.
