Mullard, Jonathan, Gower New Naturalist 99

Mullard, Jonathan Gower. (New Naturalist 99) , London: Collins, 2006.

Hard Cover. New/New. 0-00-716067-4 FIRST EDITION. Well illustrated, 8vo, pp xviii, 445, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [A definitive natural history of the Gower Peninsula, published to coincide with its 50th anniversary as an Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty, from its heritage coast and its appeal to the naturalist, to the geology, geomorphology, conservation and ecological history of this diverse area. Located to the south west of Swansea and often described as Wales in miniature, Gower Peninsula was designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) in May 1956. The area is unique in terms of the variety of the habitats and species that occur within its 188 square kms. As a result, it has a greater diversity of conservation designations than almost anywhere else in the UK. The natural history of Gower is like most parts of the British Isles inextricably linked to the activities of man across many thousand years. New Naturalist Gower Peninsula uses the evolving landscape and the effect that the associated changes have had on species and habitats as its core approach. It provides a detailed examination of: The integration of the archaeological and historic landscape with the natural landscape and its associated species; the geological creation of the peninsula, manís influence on the natural environment over the centuries, the coast and channel, including the limestone cliffs, beaches, caves and saltwater marsh, the environmental impact of the Sea Empress oil disaster in 1996, which discharged 72,000 tonnes of oil into the sea off Gower, the ongoing conservation of the area and the contribution that naturalists can make. Mullard also looks at notable plants species and the over-wintering bird populations on the estuary, which are of international importance. The culmination of years of research and rich with the latest information and full colour illustrations, New Naturalist Gower Peninsula is a valuable source of information on this diverse and fascinating area.
