A Naturalist's Shetland
J Laughton Johnston
The only full description of the natural history of Shetland in print. Numerous colour photos plus illustrations by John Busby.
Shetlands unique ecology illustrates the nature and effect of its isolation and the overlap of northern and southern, British, Scandinavian and Icelandic species and communities.
Twelve chapters describe its ecology, flora and fauna, marine fisheries, Fair Isle, local and visiting naturalists and the oil industry and the book closes with a chapter which puts today's environmental changes in the context of those of the last 12,000 years and draws lessons for the future.
