The British Oak : Its History and natural History

£14.99

Product description

The dustjacket has a slight nick to the top front, a 1cm tear at the top of the spine and damage to rear flap, but is otherwise in very good condition. The book has a blue cloth hardback finish in excellent condition. The pages are clean, tightly bound and unmarked - in very good condition.

"This volume is the most comprehensive ever published on the two native British oaks, Quercus petrae and Q. robur. The leading experts in the country have contributed chapters on all aspects of the life and death of these our most cherished native trees: botanists have written on the taxonomy, cytology, morphology, reproduction, regeneration and productivity whilst foresters and historians have dealt with the growing of oak and its changing abundance and use down the ages. Biologists of many disciplines have assessed the importance of oak as a habitat for other organisms, both plant and animal.
"This is the report of the 14th Conference of the Botanical Society of the British Isles which took place at the University of Sussex, in September, 1973."
