Riassunto: About 30 miles south-west of Land?s End is the low group of rocks and islands that form the Isles of Scilly. Mysterious, romantic and beautiful, they have long exercised the imagination of story tellers and historians. In this New Naturalist volume she examines the many aspects that make the islands and their flora and fauna so unique: their geography, geology and climate, the people of the islands, the way they used the land, and its present day management. She brings to life the major kinds of habitats found in Scilly: the heath landsbird watchers, the coast, cultivated fields, and wetlands. She also discusses the people who have been important in the study of the island flora and fauna, and tells the story of the rise in popularity of the islands for birdwatchers.
L'autore: Rosemary Parslow is Director of Conservation for the Cambridgeshire Wildlife Trust. She first went to Scilly forty years ago, while working as a scientific assistant at the Natural History Museum in South Kensington.
