About this book
As 2011 was the UN-decreed International Year Forests, this book is published to go with the many forest-related events that have taken place across the continent. This title follows the same format as "Wild Wonders of Europe", a bestseller last Christmas.
Lays bare the immense diversity of Europe's forests. This book surveys different habitats and the resident trees, moving from the temperate rainy forests of Turkey and Georgia, to the dry and sun-filled woodlands of the Mediterranean, to the frostbitten terrain of Alpine regions.
