This is the sort of book you will return to time and time again. It has sections on: Mammals, Birds, Reptiles, Fish, Amphibians, Insects, Spiders, Molloscs, Crustaceans, Trees and Shrubs, Wild Flowers, Water Plants, Grasses, Fungi, and more! Each entry comes with a good quality photograph.
It is great for use with children in schools or out and about in the countryside.
It would be very useful to anyone doing Mountain Leader courses to familiarise themselves with the flora and fauna of Ireland.
Although specifically written for Ireland I would think that this would be very useful on Mainland Britian as well, although some creatures of note that would be missing are snakes, moles and woodpeckers, none of which appear in Ireland!
