About this book

Complete your New Naturalist collection with Harper Collins's facsimile versions, which are printed on demand. Vegetation of Britain and Ireland was first published in 2013.

Another volume in the popular New Naturalist series, Vegetation of Britain and Ireland covers all aspects of the plant life of Britain and Ireland. This edition is produced from an original copy by William Collins.

Michael Proctor, an expert in his field, discusses the development of the landscape of Britain and Ireland from prehistoric times, including the influence of people and their agricultural practices on the vegetation.

He provides a comprehensive account of all the different types of plant habitat in Britain and Ireland: from woodlands and scrubland to meadows and grasslands, from wetlands and peatlands to heaths, and from the mountain vegetation to the sea coast. He examines the history and ecology of each of these habitats, and describes the rich variety of flora found living there.

The author concludes with an account of the changes to our landscape which have taken place during the twentieth century, and prospects for the future, including the effects of environmental change.

Media reviews

"It is simply magnificent [...] Michael Proctor's knowledge of our wild habitats and their plants – mosses and lichens, as well as flowers, trees and ferns – is possibly unequalled [...] It will probably be our senior guide on wild vegetation for the rest of our lifetimes."
