Nature Guide to the Aran Islands by Con O’Rourke

This consummate description of the wildlife of the Aran Islands – its flora, fauna, geology and climate – is by an expert intimately familiar with the landscape. The outcome of lifelong study and observation, it condenses key facts from the writings on Aran, illustrates them copiously with colour photographs, and fuses the whole into a concise source for exploring the diverse ecosystem of the islands.

The Nature Guide to the Aran Islands throws open a window onto one of western Europe’s environmental treasure-troves, and is an invaluable and enduring work of reference.

‘Dr Con O’Rourke has inspired future generations of scientists through his passionate work on promoting the sciences – particularly biology – and his enthusiasm for the natural world.’ – Niamh O’Rourke, The Irish Times
