Invasive Aliens: multi-award-winning book now in stock
Although its title and cover might suggest otherwise, the multi-award-winning Invasive Aliens is often a tale of one species – humans – and its impact on wildlife. GWCT members might be well-versed in what (or who) brought the Reeves muntjac to these shores, but there is something for everyone to learn in these pages.
Dan Eatherley gives balance to the tale of species – both plants and animals – introduced to Britain and those which were taken overseas, often as a reminder of ‘home’. Much like the unintended proliferation of muntjac, little did the Shakespeare-loving ornithologist who brought starlings to Central Park expect to end up creating the continent’s most abundant bird. A fascinating social history, particularly about those with a romantic ideal of what nature looks like. Find out more and order your copy here.
