  • Conservation and Management of Marine Mammals49% OFF
    Conservation and Management of Marine… -

    During the 1960's through to the 80's, the public awareness and interest in marine mammals and their conservation had a marked beneficial effect on the numbers of whales, seals, dolphins and manatees killed for commercial purposes. Other serious threats to their existence are now widely recognised however - incidental kills during fishing, degradation of habitat, pollution and collision with vessels to name a few. The various contributors to this book review the history, current status and implications of marine mammal legislation, the interactions of marine mammals with fisheries and the current whaling debate. They evaluate recent efforts directed at the Florida manatee, the Hawaiian monk seal the North Atlantic right whale and other endangered species.

    The seahorse is one of nature's most startling creations. To the ancient Greeks and Romans who found them washed up on the shore after storms they pulled the chariot of Neptune. Even to us today they seem out of this world. It is a fish but has the head of a horse, its fins move so fast they are almost invisible, it has a tail, but a curly one, like a monkey. There are up to 1000 species worldwide ranging in size from half an inch to twelve inches. New discoveries are still being made and the seahoese map is yet to be fully drawn.

  • The Strange Death of British Birdsong59% OFF
    The Strange Death of British Birdsong -

    This book examines the fluctuating fortunes of 137 species of birds. Many are birds of farmland in all its guises, from rich intensively cultivated arable land to the sheep grazed upland moors. Yet it is the loss of songbirds that people notice more than anything else. This title evokes the impact of the songbirds demise, the loss of the skylark from countryside areas where they used to be abundant, or the song thrush from rural and suburban gardens. It also points to the mystery of some of these fluctuations but detailed research has revealed many of the underlying causes. Essays on each bird are accompanied by a colour wood engraving of the birds and their eggs.
