Product description


Isolated from continental Europe, the mammalian fauna of the island of Ireland is surprisingly rich and varied. An unusual and diverse assemblage of species, how they arrived here and their reasons for staying have long intrigued both enthusiast and scholar. Such puzzles are explored in Exploring Irish Mammals, the first accessible, authoritative telling of this unique and fascinating story. Accompanied by vivid and meticulously worked illustrations two of Ireland's leading zoologists, Dr Tom Hayden and Dr Rory Harrington, chronicle the history of mammal life on this island. They explore the species that are currently to be found on land or in the waters around the coast, and they offer fascinating close-up studies of the more shy and elusive animals. This is the story of mammals in Ireland, the evolution of a unique fauna. Beautifully illustrated by Billy Clarke, Exploring Irish Mammals is an invaluable sourcebook which seeks to emphasise the great diversity, richness and heritage value of our wild animals.
