The Somerset Wetlands
The Somerset Wetlands
  • Description
  • Related

Somerset Wetlands is an original, multi-disciplinary and contemporary review of the Somerset Wetlands through time, with an expert text designed to appeal to a wide readership. Lavishly illustrated in colour, the book covers the area extending from Gordano to Ilchester and comprising its levels and moors out to the coast along and beyond Bridgwater Bay National Nature Reserve.

Although the core of the book is wildlife and nature conservation its huge range encompasses rocks and fossils, archaeology, history, farming and the life of the people. A glimpse into possible futures brings it right up-to-date with the problems of global warming and managed retreat.

The outstanding team of editors and contributors have produced perhaps the most important and exciting portrait of this fascinating yet fragile landscape – an outstanding publication which will be a rich resource for years to come.

Edited by Pat Hill-Cottingham, Derek Briggs, Richard Brunning, Andy King and Graham Rix

ISBN 9780864834327, hardback, 258x238mm, 224 pages. Published September 2006. Reprinted June 2008
