Hostile Habitats: Scotland's Mountain Environment

£12.99

Product description

Compiled by some of the country's leading experts in their fields, this revised and expanded 2nd edition of Hostile Habitats offers a detailed introduction to the natural and man-made environment of Scotland's mountains, by hillwalkers for hillwalkers. Nine in-depth chapters combine latest research and knowledge and present it in a non-specialist style. The result is the most accessible and comprehensive overview of the upland environment ever written for outdoor enthusiasts.
More than 325 photographs and diagrams illustrate chapters on Climate, Geological Foundations, Shaping the Mountain Landscape, Vegetation Cover, Invertebrate Life, Mountain Birds, Mammals, Reptiles, Amphibians and Fish, Human Traces and The Future of Our Mountains.
Supplementing these chapters are identification sections detailing the rocks, landforms, plants, invertebrates, mammals, reptiles, and human traces to be seen in the hills, all of which have been refreshed, and many expanded, in this new edition.

Published by Scottish Mountaineering Trust 2018. 2nd edition (and at time of listing, the most recent edition). 279pp. Hardback, laminate boards.
