Understanding the Upland Environment

Nature of Snowdonia: A Beginner's Guide to the Upland EnvironmentCame across Mike Raine's book Nature of Snowdonia, whilst at Plas y Brenin recently.  A great introduction to the upland environment, for anyone working towards ML or IML awards, or just interested in knowing more about Snowdonia.  Has lots of interesting tit-bits about rocks, birds, insects, flowers, fungi, mosses & lichens and the impact of man in the mountains.  Easy to dip into, not too technical - to be recommended.
