A Fauna of the Tweed Area

Nature volume 88, pages 545546 (22 February 1912) | Download Citation



THIS is the eleventh volume of Mr. J. A. Harvie-Brown's well-known “Vertebrate Fauna of Scotland,” and brings the series within sight of completion, four areas (Forth and Clyde, Sol way and Dee) remaining to be dealt with. Mr. A. H. Evans is to be congratulated on the success with which he has I dealt with the fascinating area of “Tweed” and sustained the high traditions of the series. In his labour of love he has been loyally helped by Mr. George Bolam, Mr. William Evans (who is treating of the Forth area), Mr. George Muirhead, Mr. Abel Chapman, and other well-known observers, not forgetting the editor himself. The beautiful illustrations which adorn the text are mostly due to photographs by Mr. William Norrie, of Fraserburgh, whose work has enhanced the value of previous volumes. They bring the habitats depicted very vividly before the eye, most of all when pleasant memories are already there.
