Throughout the New Naturalist series the policy has been to regard man and his works as an integral part of Britain's natural history. The series could not be complete without a direct assessment of man's influence on the face of the land on its animal and plant communities.
Man has made many bad mistakes in his use of land to tend his animals and grow his plants; and he may make worse ones. But Dudley Stamp, in this compelling and stimulating volume convinces us that we certainly have the knowledge, and may even have the wisdom to preserve our wonderful natural resources from decay, impoverishment and disaster.
