About this book

Complete your New Naturalist collection with Harper Collins's facsimile versions, which are printed on demand. Woodlands was first published in 2006.

The 100th volume of the New Naturalist series presents a landmark in natural history publishing. What better author than Oliver Rackham, and what better subject than the enduringly popular woodlands? Looking at such diverse evidence as the woods used in buildings and ships, and how woodland has been portrayed in pictures and photographs, Rackham reconstructs British woodland through the ages.

Aimed at the non-specialist, New Naturalist Woodlands investigates what woods are and how they function. In lively style, Rackham takes us through:

- How woods evolved how they are managed
- The basic botany (roots, partnerships, longevity, tree-rings etc)
- Outline of Woodland History
- Pollen Analysis and Wildwood
- Archives of Woodland and how to study them
- Different types of woodland
- The rise and fall of modern forestry

Illustrated with beautiful colour photographs throughout, this New Naturalist is set to be a classic for collectors and general readers alike.
