A practical encyclopedia of animals, birds, fish, reptiles, and insects, both wild and domestic. It also provides a historic survey of when and how species were introduced and died out, and how they have flourished or declined. There are essays on their interaction with man, from outright exploitation to over-production. Social history, folklore, and legend are included to give the most magisterial survey of Britain's fauna.
