The Natural History of Orkney (Collins New Naturalist)

R. J. Berry

The Orkney Islands are a distinct position, by way of either their usual historical past and their human population. Their wealthy coastal habitats host major seabird colonies and marine groups. Their place off the north coast of Scotland presents a massive landfall for migratory birds. In human phrases, conventional existence of fishing and crafting vie with smooth industries, reminiscent of oil, resulting in conflicts of either human and flora and fauna conservation dimensions. This e-book paints a wide photo of the typical and artifical environments.
