Title: Wild Spain by Teresa Farino
Post by: Clive on May 09, 2009, 18:58 PM
I received my copy of Teresa Farino's latest publication today from Amazon and what a great surprise.... With many beautiful photographs supplied by Carlos Sanchez this book is a must for any visitor or resident with an interest in the wildlife and geography of Spain....

I must admit I was expecting a kind of pocket or travel companion guide but at 24cmX31cm this is more of a coffee table edition. That said if you are travelling to Spain and have the space... Take it....

Well done Teresa, absolutely brilliant!

Product Description
Spain is one of the richest countries in Europe in terms of flora and fauna - its mammals include wolves, bears and the endemic Iberian Lynx, it has the highest number of breeding bird species in Europe, some of the best butterfly sites and an outstanding array of wildflowers. The range of habitats is vast, from the snow-capped mountain peaks of the Pyrenees through evergreen forests, olive groves and wood-pasture to freshwater wetlands and the arid sub-desert of the south. Few other European countries can rival its appeal to those interested in wildlife and the environment. "Wild Spain" celebrates the landscapes and natural history of this surprisingly diverse country, including the Canaries and Balearics. Expert naturalist and landscape historian Teresa Farino examines the geography and climate, the many different habitat types and the remarkable variety of wildlife, including the many endemic species and impressive list of rarities for which Spain is a last refuge. More than 230 superb colour photographs bring alive their dramatic world. The past 20 years have seen a revolution in Spain in terms of wildlife conservation and environmental awareness, and the final section of the book looks at the country's protected areas, the development of green tourism and where to watch wildlife.
