Full Description

The uplands of Britain are unique landscapes creaed by grazing animals, primarily livestock. The soils and blanket bogs of the uplands are the largest stores of carbon in the UK, and 70% of the county's drinking water comes from the uplands. It's a significant region, not least to the multitudes of bird species that hunt forage and nest there. Once again, Ian Newton demonstrated his mastery of the subject matter at hand in this beautifully illustrated, authoritative addition of the New Naturalist series.
