The British Isles are an amazingly diverse and beautiful part of the world, home to over 60,000 species of animals and plants, some of which occur nowhere else on Earth.
This book takes you on a journey through Britain’s diverse habitats and ecosystems to explore the dazzling rainbow of wildlife with which we share these islands.
Discover the animals, plants and fungi that live in our woodlands, purple heathlands, sand dunes, peat bogs, moors and windswept mountain summits.
Over 400 species are profiled with text descriptions, spectacular images and conservation status indicators. This work covers an immense range of native British wildlife, from earthstars to goshawks, pine martins to bee orchids, slow worms and stoats to hawk moths and cold-water corals. Extinct, re-introduced and non-native animals and plants are also included.
Be amazed at the dazzling rainbow of wildlife that calls beautiful Britain home.
