Guide to Britain's wildlife, plants and flowers

Britain's Wildlife, Plants and Flowers is beautifully illustrated with clearly labelled colour artworks, which are an invaluable guide to identifying any species you come across. Each drawing is accompanied by a description of the species, including its size, which part of the country it is most commonly found in, and where appropriate, the time of year when you are most likely to see it.

You'll also learn why each creature behaves in the way it does, and why certain plants favour particular habitats. Each section is arranged for the purposes of quick and easy identification, with animals, plants and flowers categorised according to colour, shape, arrangement of leaves or petals, zoological families and so on. This is an invaluable guide to the nature of the British Isles for all the family to enjoy.
