Synopsis of Scottish Woodland History: Essays and Perspectives:

Scottish Woodland History relates the complex history of the Scottish native woodlands–both the old Caledonia pine forests and the deciduous woods–and how people have used and misused them over the centuries. The book illustrates the extraordinary variety and vibrancy of woodland research carried on in Scotland today, by all manner of people–ranging from practising ecologists, foresters and conservationists to academic archaeologists, palaeontologists and historians. Scottish Woodland History reflects all of their concerns, but is unified by the contributors’ love for the ancient woods of Scotland.

This book was conceived at a conference in April 1995 by the Institute for Environmental History, University of St. Andrews, at the Scottish Natural Heritage Countryside Centre, Battelby, Perthshire.
