Sunday ebook evaluate – Ponds, Swimming pools and Puddles by Jeremy Biggs and Penny Williams – Mark Avery

Each new New Naturalist is price a glance and this one is a hefty 614 pages of data, illustrations, pictures and graphs about smallish waterbodies, written by two acknowledged consultants. It must be mentioned that the New Naturalists have regained their skill to provide well-illustrated books with clear color pictures and pretty clear graphs which is what one ought to anticipate from a ebook that’s nonetheless pretty costly.

I loved Chapter 3 essentially the most, on the historical past of Britain’s ponds however Chapter 4, on how the biology of ponds differs from different freshwater our bodies, was an in depth runner up. We additionally study in regards to the wealth of wildlife that inhabits these  small wetlands and there’s a convincing case made for pond creation being a worthwhile conservation measure within the wider countryside and in parks and gardens too. Problems with administration and non-management are mentioned.

The quilt? That’s an excellent cowl and Robert Greenhalf has established himself as a worthy successor to the nice Robert Gillmor.  I’d give it 9/10.

Ponds, Swimming pools and Puddles by Jeremy Biggs and Penny Williams is printed by William Collins.
