A detailed study of Orkney's animals, plants, and scenic history.
By R. J. Berry
Orkney has been strangely neglected by naturalists when compared to Shetland or western Scotland, although it has long been a place of pilgrimage for archaeologists and historians.
This book is an antidote to the neglect, making available the islands' animals, plants, and scenic history to casual readers as well as to specialists.
The Orkney Islands are a special place, both in terms of their natural history and human inhabitants.
Their rich coastal habitats lost significant seabird colonies and marine communities. Their northerly position provides a major land fall for migratory birds. In human terms, traditional lifestyles of fishing and crafting vie with modern industries, such as oil, leading to conflicts of both human and wildlife conservation dimensions.
This book paints a broad picture of the natural and manmade environments.
