Practical and evocative guides to the natural world
This spectacular series provides readers with a thorough understanding of topics such as astronomy, birding and weather, and enables them to become keener, better and more informed observers of the world around them. Written in clear, accessible text by acclaimed scientists and specialists, each book contains newly commissioned illustrations and a wealth of images by the world’s foremost photographers.
Divided into sections by knot type, this is a collection of essential knots. Many have broad applications, others are quite specialised, some may be tied simply for decoration and a few can be used to perform seemingly impossible rope tricks.
Each beautiful book provides a comprehensive account of a particular group of animals. There is an introductory section on evolution, classification, biology, behaviour, habitats and conservation status. This is followed by a species-by-species survey.
