Here is a fascinating and authoritative survey of the complex inter-relationships of bird and human life in this country. Here is a fascinating and authoritative survey of the complex interrelationships of bird and human life in this country. Dr. Murton begins with an entire outline of the earliest evidence of the impact of birds on man, and vice versa and of the ecological considerations involved. He then proceeds to describe in detail how men and birds affect each other in these islands - in food production, farming, forestry, horticulture, fishery, urban conditions and hygiene, sport and industry. He concludes with an account of the conservation issues involved - the need to preserve unique habitats and to protect bird life, beside the demands of crop protection and control of 'problem birds'. It is a book which anyone interest in either our birds or our environment will find of absorbing interest.
