Fossil reptiles of Great Britain by M. J Benton( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British Fossil reptile sites are of international importance since they include remains that fill the time gaps poorly known elsewhere. They include rich classic reptile beds which have been the source of dozens of important specimens. This volume details all those sites that have yielded fossil reptiles. The fifty most important localities are described in detail and an extensive bibliography of everything published on British Fossil reptiles since 1676 is provided
The Quaternary of Scotland by W. A Wimbledon( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In describing the geomorphological heritage of Scotland, this volume offers a remarkable account of how the natural environment responded in terms of landforms, processes and plant communities, to severe climatic change as the Quaternary era progressed over the last two million years. This legacy, as preserved in the 138 nationally important GCR sites described, documents a remarkable diversity of landforms in a relatively small area. The rugged highland contrast with the rolling hills and flat plains found further south, while the western and northern islands, together with the highly-indented coastline add further to the scenic diversity. How this variety of landscapes came into being, the forces which shaped it, and the climatic extremes which drove it, are the themes explored in this volume
Igneous rocks of south-west England by P. A Floyd( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume puts the Geological Conservation Review sites of south west England into their geological context. Details are given of the lavas, granites and associated rocks of Devon and Cornwall, which were formed throughout a major mountain-building episode, between 450-270 million years ago, and have shaped the economic growth of the region
British plant communities by Donald Pigott( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work breaks new ground in wedding the rigorous interest in the classification of plant communities that has characterised continental phytosociology with deep concern traditional in Great Britain to understand how vegetation works
Quaternary of the Thames by D. R Bridgland( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes important sites in the Pleistocene (ice age) deposits of the Thames terrace system which were laid down by the Thames and its tributaries during the many (alternating) cold and warm episodes of the Pleistocene. Considerable attention is devoted to correlating the Thames sequence with deposits found elsehwere in Britain, on the European continent and on the ocean floor. The ocean floor deposits are particularly important as the deep sea record is practically unbroken and can be used as a standard for global correlation. Quaternary of the Thames prepresents the first systematic attempt to relate the Thames sequence to this global oceanic record. This reinterpretation brinfgs the Thames into line with many other areas of Britain and the European continent, underlining the unique importance of the Thames sequence within the British Quaternary, and will be warmly welcomed by many workers in the field
Caledonian structures in Britain : south of the Midland Valley by J. E Treagus( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book deals with those sites selected as part of the Geological Conservation Review within the southern British part of the Caledonides - a Caledonian terrain without strong and pervasive deformation and metamorphism, such as occurred further north

Aquatic plants in Britain and Ireland by C. D Preston( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Over the past 50 years, major changes have taken place in the distribution of aquatic plants in Europe. Many species have declined whilst other species have increased in abundance or spread, including several that were originally introduced from the New World. Despite the relative richness of the aquatic flora of Britain and Ireland, it is a neglected area of study. This book is not an identification manual but provides a summary of the distribution, habitat and reproductive biology of 200 taxa in 72 genera, with individual distribution maps, and also summarizes their distribution overseas
Karst and caves of Great Britain by Tony Waltham( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Areas of limestone outcrop are widely distributed throughout England and Wales and this is reflected in their rich diversity of karst landscapes and cave systems. Indeed, some of the most spectacular natural landscapes in Britain are karstic, and have provided geomorphologists with classic areas of study. <br/> As well as a general description of the nature and origin of karsts and caves, this volume contains descriptions of almost one hundred Sites of Special Scientific Interest from the internationally renowned glaciokarst of the Yorkshire Dales, the Northern Pennines, Peak District, Mendips, Wales and other areas
