The Peatlands of Britain and Ireland A Traveller's Guide

Author: Clifton Bain Format: Hardback Release Date: 23/04/2020

Clifton Bain now completes his trilogy with this look at the Peatlands of Britain and Ireland. A source of fuel for many generations, they are now a haven for wildlife and plants as well as a storehouse of greenhouse gasses. Their social history is one of exploitation and the value of mending and restoring is a major theme of the book. Like its predecessors, The Peatlands of Britain and Ireland will be a sumptuous volume richly illustrated with photographs and with drawings by the wildlife artist Darren Rees.

There is also a chance to look forward, after one of the greatest conservation success stories means a new future for the pinewoods and their spectacular wildlife. This journey to the pinewoods introduces a natural wonder alongside a rich cultural heritage.

The Rainforests Of Britain And Ireland

The Rainforests Of Britain And Ireland

Author: Clifton Bain Format: Hardback Release Date: 26/08/2015

Following his tremendous success in 2013 with The Ancient Pinewoods of Scotland, Clifton Bain now turns his attention to the mixed oak, birch and other woodlands that line the west coasts of, north to south, Scotland, Northern England, Wales and Ireland. Correctly described as a rainforest, these trees take a higher rainfall than some areas of the Brazilian rainforest, the unbroken lineage since the Ice Age have provided resource for the human population, habitat for animals and birds, and acted as a lung for the planet. Published to the same high standards as The Ancient Pinewoods of Scotland, The Celtic Rainforest will be furnished with maps, original artwork, and travel guidance. It will be introduced by Vanessa Collingridge
