The impact of invasive organisms is second only to habitat loss as a threat to biodiversity and yet, despite increasing ecological awareness, people remain largely unaware of these plants and animals and their potentially devastating impact. Although most biological introductions fail, many prove successful and these can prove disastrous for native fauna and flora. This field guide will enable the identification of a range of invasive plants and animals now found in Britain. Though these species are of particular concern to conservationists there has previously been no unified guide devoted to their recognition. This book will act both as an ID guide, appealing to the amateur naturalist, and as an important tool for ecologists and land managers attempting to tackle the problem posed by invasive species.

People all over Britain and Europe have long welcomed the arrival of swifts and swallows as a promise of summer being just around the corner. And with their similar long wings and dashing flight, it is perhaps understandable that we often confuse the two birds. After all, they have much in common: both feed on flying insects, both breed around buildings, and both are long-distance migrants that spend winter in Africa. But appearances can be deceptive. Swifts and swallows are completely unrelated birds that have adapted through evolution to survive in similar ways. In Spotlight: Swifts and Swallows, Mike Unwin reveals their fascinating lifestyles, explains how and why they have acquired their similarities, and ways in which we can help protect them. The Spotlight series introduces readers to the lives and behaviour of our favourite animals with eye-catching colour photography and informative expert text.

Cultural Writing. Art. Produced in collaboration with The Bluecoat, Liverpool's oldest arts center, Alec Finlay's SPECIMEN COLONY draws on an exhibition and permanent open-air installation of participative public sculpture that creates a series of colorful colonies formed by nest boxes -- functional and familiar objects created by Finlay whose form suggests the schematic figure of a bird. Finlay's work transposes the colors of exotic birds found on foreign postage stamps onto these nest boxes, playfully commenting on Liverpool's global links of trade and migration while contemplating the city's avian emblem. This collage of postage stamps and the remarkable birds that illustrate them not only evokes communication, correspondence, and collecting, but also makes SPECIMEN COLONY an unforgettable and lushly illustrated artist's book that stands on its own, aside from the events surrounding the exhibition. Alec Finlay is an artist, poet, and publisher. Born in Scotland in 1966, he became the first BALTIC Arts Centre artist-in-residence.
