PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
A unique natural history of the plant and animal invaders of the British Isles, spanning thousands of years of arrivals and escapes, as well as defences mounted, and a look to the future. From the ancient settlements of our islands, through the Roman and medieval periods, to the age of exploration and globalisation, the fascinating histories of a succession of animals, plants, fungi and other alien life forms that, apparently, belong elsewhere. From rabbits and rhododendrons, to crayfish, apples, pheasants, potatoes, Asian hornets and zebra mussels. While some have been encouraged and others hard-fought, today’s complement of alien species tells an intriguing and often overlooked story about our past.
