From the cover: In The Nature of Britain Alan Titchmarsh turns wildlife detective, taking us on a journey of discovery through the habitats of the British Isles.

For its size, Britain has an enormously diverse range of natural environments, from the mountains, forests and lakes of the north, to the fenland and chalk downs of the south. Thousands of rivers and streams flow through moorland and woodland, heath and meadow to its 10,000 miles of coastline. And in even the largest, most built-up cities, a surprisingly wide variety of urban wildlife thrives under the noses of their often oblivious human inhabitants.

In this book Alan surveys each of Britains landscapes, chapter by chapter, to provide a detailed picture of the plants and animals that live there. Fascinating essays on each habitat are followed by detailed descriptions and field notes of the species that can be found in them.

Accompanying a major BBC television series, and illustrated with more than 900 colour photographs, The Nature of Britain is both an inspirational celebration of British flora and fauna, and a practical guide that will help you to identify the myriad native species with which we share these islands.
