Review

‘Among the most important wildlife science and conservation books of the past 2–3 decades.’
Journal of Wildlife Management

‘A must-read for anyone interested in the British countryside.’ Edward Norfolk, The Field

‘Very enjoyable, deeper and wider ranging than the title suggests, packed with information and insight.’
British Birds

‘[…] a stimulating read from an expert in his (arable) field.’
Mark Avery, Birdwatch

‘Plenty for everyone’
Bird Watching

‘A worthy addition to the New Naturalist series that should appeal to anyone interested in farmland ecology and the countryside.’ BTO News

‘An absorbing account of the modern agricultural landscape’ BBC Wildlife

‘This is a book that will keep you thinking’ Scottish Birds

‘I hope his arguments and ideas, along with his call for cooperation between agribusiness, protectionists and hunters, are listened to and acted upon for the sake of farmland biodiversity and the future of our countryside.’ Ibis

About the Author

G R [Dick] Potts DSc, FRAgS, a farmer’s son from Yorkshire, is an internationally renowned expert on the Grey Partridge and farmland ecology. He graduated from the University of Durham where his studies of the Shag in the 1960s led to concerns over the effects of pesticides on wildlife. He joined the Game Conservancy in 1968, eventually becoming Director General. His pioneering approach led to changes in conservation methods and new legislation to benefit wildlife and agriculture. He has served as Chairman of the World Pheasant Association, Cranborne Chase AONB and Vice President of the British Ornithologist’s Union, where he was awarded the Godman-Salvin Medal. His written work includes the award-winning book .The Partridge: Pesticides, Predation and Conservation.
