The islands of Scotland are the result of millions of years of geological activity, thousands of years of hydrological, pedological and biological processes, and hundreds of years of the impact of people. Written by a team of experts, this book addresses the complex interactions affecting the islands of Scotland. The action of water and the changes in the sea level are keys to understanding the coastal landscapes and seascapes of today. The wildlife of the machair is renowned in north-west Europe, as is the varied marine flora and fauna of Scotland's sea lochs, voes and wave-battered open coasts. But rather than provide just a description of what occurs on and around Scotland's islands, this book also addresses the more complex issues of the sustainable use of these islands' natural heritage. Based on a conference, organized by the Research and Advisory Services Directorate of Scottish Natural Heritage, this book presents an account of what we know of Scotland's island marine heritage.
