Details


An invaluable introduction to the upland regions of Britain – their structure, climate, vegetation and animal life, their present and past uses and the problems of their conservation for the future. This edition is exclusive to newnaturalists.com


Moorland, mountain-top and upland grazing occupy over a third of the total living-space of the British Isles, and, of all kinds of land, have suffered least interference by man. Mountains and moorlands provide the widest scope for studying natural wild life on land.


Professor Pearsall died in 1964. This new edition has been revised by his friend and pupil, Winifred Pennington. The book remains an invaluable introduction to the upland regions of Britain – their structure, climate, vegetation and animal life, their present and past uses and the problems of their conservation for the future.
