Linescapes: Remapping and Reconnecting Britain's Fragmented Wildlife

Hugh Warwick (Author)

Description

'Glorious... Political, passionate, perceptive' Robert Macfarlane

An eye-opening exploration of the lines that cut through our countryside, from hedges to railways, and a passionate manifesto for reconnecting wildlife.

Our landscape has been transformed by a vast network of lines, from hedges and walls to railways and power cables. In Linescapes , Hugh Warwick unravels the far-reaching ecological consequences of these changes. As our lives and our land were fenced in and threaded together, wildlife habitats were cut into ever smaller - and increasingly unviable - fragments.

Yet as Warwick travels across this linescape, he shows that we can help our flora and fauna to flourish once again. With his fresh and bracing perspective on Britain's countryside, he proposes a challenge and gives ground for hope, for our lines can and do contain a real potential for wildness and for wildlife.
