Habitas - Animal life/Plant life/Minerals, Rocks & Fossils

The Natural History of Ulster by John Faulkner and Robert Thompson

The Butterflies and Moths of Northern Ireland

This is the first comprehensive book on natural history in the nine-county province of Ulster - a subject that has been remarkably overlooked in such an otherwise well-exposed region. Nature in Ulster is uniquely varied and reveals much about how humanity relates to the natural world.

The heart of the book deals with the habitats that characterize Ulster's landscapes. Chapters cover farmland and woodland, bogs, mountains and lakes, the coast, the sea and urban habitats. 

The Natural History of Ulster will appeal to anyone with an interest in the province, whether resident, visitor or expatriate. Contributions from some of Ulster's most experienced naturalists have been carefully woven together to produce an engaging narrative. It is a book that delights you with the lavish beauty of its imagery, and invites you to develop new outlooks on both natural history and on Ulster.

The 608 page book is lavishly illustrated with over 600 high quality photogaphs many specially commissioned for this publication. Particular highlights are the aerial landscapes and stunning close-ups.
