About this title


An unexpected facet of the Emerald Isle is revealed to the reader in this study of a unique environment on the westernmost edge of Europe. The limestone karst landscape of The Burren, its clints and grykes home to an enormous variety of plants and animals, is punctuated by wetland habitats and fringed with a rocky Atlantic coastline. For the dedicated botanist and tourist alike, it is the display of summer flora which is the highlight of The Burren's year. This title is a comprehensive and detailed study of an increasingly well known area of special interest. Gordon D'Arcy has provided a wealth of information in a straightforward and readable text. The geology, archaeology, ecology, agriculture and most vit ally the future of The Burren all come under D'Arcy's keen eye.

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
