In a much-anticipated addition to the New Naturalist library, Stefan Buczacki takes a broad look at the relatively unexplored world of the garden, and its relevance within the context of natural history overall. Though gardens are often viewed merely as artificial creations rather than easily accessible places to observe and encourage wildlife, 'Garden Natural History' rectifies this misconception. By viewing gardens within the wider context of the British ecological landscape, Buczacki follows the garden's development as a habitat within which vertebrates, invertebrates and native and alien plants alike have been introduced and to which they have adapted. 'Garden Natural History' offers a fascinating insight into the diversity of organisms and ecological processes that constitute the garden, whilst also highlighting the role of the gardener as conservator and showing how the garden can inspire all naturalists.

About the Author:

Professor Stefan Buczacki is equally well known as the presenter of many hundreds of radio and television gardening programmes and as one of the country's most experienced non-fiction authors with well over fifty published titles on natural history, gardening and biography, many for HarperCollins. He is a graduate of the Universities of Southampton and Oxford and holds distinctions and awards from many scientific societies as well as honorary degrees from Liverpool John Moores and Derby Universities.

Review:

'Original, informative and richly illustrated: a great book to while away an afternoon in the garden.' Guardian 'While covering topics such as the modern-day garden and the gardener's role, Buczacki is keen to highlight the educative role of gardens, and speculates on what could be in store for them in the forthcoming years. With a book as inspiring as this, that future is set to be bright green.' The Field
