About the Author

Clive Chatters lives and works in the New Forest, England's largest and most complete heathland landscape. He has spent his career in the front line of nature conservation, in both the statutory and charitable sectors. He is first and foremost a naturalist who enjoys exploring the British countryside and researching the history of how it has been shaped. Clive has written widely, including the Saltmarsh volume of the same series.

Reviews

Chatters' expertise and enthusiasm brings the subject to life as he explores the history and ecology of these wildlife-rich habitats. * BBC Wildlife *
An ecological masterpiece, generous in its sympathies, awe-inspiring in its breadth of knowledge, and genuinely enticing in its journey around heathland Britain. This is a book that ought to influence policy. As always in this series, the illustrations and design are top class. -- Peter Marren * British Wildlife *
Offers great coverage of a habitat which is always under pressure ... worth every penny * Birdwatching magazine *
Beautifully designed, uncluttered and attractively laid out, and with many hundreds of colourful images interspersed throughout... eminently readable. Clive writes impeccably in a bright and engaging way, making the subject matter compelling and comprehensible. * Open Space *
An ever-timely reminder of why we should treasure and repair the few fragments [of heathland] that survive today. * Plantlife *
Clive writes impeccably in a bright and engaging way, making the subject matter compelling and comprehensible. * Open Spaces Society *
