Nature and Farming, Sustaining Native Biodiversity in Agricultural Landscapes by David Norton and Nick Reid.
This book explains the theory of native biodiversity in farmscapes and the many benefits and challenges. In case studies and examples the approaches to conserving, restoring and managing biodiversity in our degraded rural areas are brought to life. The book is practical for today and looks clearly ahead to setting and achieving future goals.
This book is well illustrated and the photography is particularly high quality. It is well set out, and with a great balance of practice and theory to be good value for all members of our community.
The quality of the book is such that it can easily be applied in other geographical and climatic contexts.
