Overview
-

A fascinating look at the mixed oak, birch, and other woodlands that line the west coasts of Scotland, Northern England, Wales, and Ireland. Correctly described as a rainforest, these trees take a higher rainfall than some areas of the Brazilian rainforest. Since the Ice Age, they have provided resource for the human population, habitat for animals and birds, and acted as a lung for the planet. The Rainforests of Britain and Ireland is illustrated with maps, original artwork, and travel guidance. Color illustrations throughout.
