Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The book is absolutely terrific. An all-star cast of conservation scientists and practitioners document powerful stories of loss - and of hope for the future - among Britain and Ireland's many non-human inhabitants. Gripping and rigorous - a core foundation for students of Conservation Ecology and Environmental Science."
Gretchen Daily, Director, Center for Conservation Biology, Stanford University

"The season haschanged but the silence is deeper and that's why this important book must be read. Its not a catalogue of doom -its a pragmatic snapshot of reality and a desperate plea for action. Your action."
Chris Packham, Naturalist, Wildlife Photographer and TV Presenter

"If we are concerned about the environmental future of Britain and Ireland, then we must know as much as possible about its present condition..That is why this book is so important. It gives us a benchmark...It is invaluable now - and in years to come it will be irreplaceable."
From the Foreword, by Sir David Attenborough

"Silent Summer will surely become essential reading for anyone who is interested in, and concerned about, Britain's and Ireland's wildlife."
Bulletin of the British Ecological Society

"This is an ambitious work designed for both the layperson interested in wildlife and as a reference text for undergraduates."
Mary M. Peacock, Ecology
