Cambridge is a biodiversity hotspot, and its wildlife is celebrated in this multi-authored book. The city's habitats, geology, climate and development are all covered. These are followed by chapters on the flora, bryophytes, fungi and lichens. Invertebrates are treated in equal detail, with accounts on insects, spiders and molluscs. Then follow chapters on fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Interesting sites, nature conservation successes are also covered.
This book describes the rich diversity of wildlife found along the Somerset coast, with chapters on seaweeds and marine life, flowering plants, mosses and liverworts, lichens and fungi, insects, spiders and other invertebrates, reptiles and amphibians, birds and mammals, as well as chapters on habitats, geology and fossils, and its history.
This comprehensive Flora has been compiled by the Sussex Botanical Recording Society to update, expand and revise the Sussex Plant Atlas published in 1980 and is the first major account of the county's flora since Wolley-Dod's work of 1937.
