Woodlands. New Naturalist volume 100

£75.00

  • Now out of print and much sought after, we still have a few unread 1st edition copies in their shrink wrapped covers.
  • The 100th volume of the New Naturalist series presented a landmark in natural history publishing. What better author than Oliver Rackham, and what better subject than the enduringly popular woodlands? Looking at such diverse evidence as the woods used in buildings and ships, and how woodland has been portrayed in pictures and photographs, Rackham reconstructs British woodland through the ages.

    Aimed at the non-specialist, New Naturalist Woodlands investigates what woods are and how they function. In lively style, Rackham takes us through:

    - How woods evolved how they are managed
    - The basic botany (roots, partnerships, longevity, tree-rings etc)
    - Outline of Woodland History
    - Pollen Analysis and Wildwood
    - Archives of Woodland and how to study them
    - Different types of woodland
    - The rise and fall of modern forestry
