Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0856611042, Hardcover)The Orkney Islands are a special place, in terms of both their natural history and their human inhabitants. Their rich coastal habitats host significant seabird colonies and marine communities. Their position off the north coast of Scotland provides a major landfall for migratory birds. In human terms, traditional lifestyles of fishing and crafting vie with modern industries, such as oil, leading to conflicts of both human and wildlife conservation dimensions. This book paints a broad picture of the natural and manmade environments.
