Notă biografică

David Cabot is an Irish naturalist and writer. He was educated at University College, Oxford and Trinity College, Dublin, where he studied natural sciences, going on to University College, Galway, where he obtained a PhD in ecology of bird parasites while lecturing in Zoology. For twenty years he worked as an ecologist and was responsible for Ireland's National Heritage Inventory, developing nature conservation policy, later also as special environmental advisor to two Irish Prime Ministers. An all-round field naturalist and ecologist, he specialises in wildfowl and seabirds, enjoying the arduous life of fieldwork on islands, in the Arctic and other wild places. He lives in County Mayo, on the edge of the Atlantic.


'A comprehensive addition to Collins' iconic New Naturalist series. Lavishly illustrated ... this book should provide great inspiration.' Birdwatch Praise for David Cabot's previous New Naturalist volumes: Wildfowl 'Superb photographs and paintings' The Irish Times Ireland 'Ireland is a monumental, near-definitive natural history of this country ... a valuable, scientifically-based, professionally-indexed and accessible study ...' The Irish Times Praise for the New Naturalist series: 'The series is an amazing achievement.' The Times Literary Supplement 'The books are glorious to own.' Independent
