This beautifully illustrated volume is a unique record of this area’s geology, fossil record, and its living fauna and flora.  Natural Emirates has been written by 14 experts, each with considerable field experience in the strategically important region.  For example, the British Natural History Museum’s paleontologist, Peter Whybrow, tells of his decade or more of exploration for Miocene fossils – revealing a land that was once inhabited by hippopotamus, crocodiles and monkeys.  Geologist Gary Feulner provides a fascinating and easy to follow account of the UAE’s rock formations, enough to make one want to head straight into the hills with sampling hammer at the ready.  Peter Hellyer describes how an interest in the UAE’s wildlife has been nurtured over the years and how it has spawned the various Natural History Societies that flourish there today.  Chapters on conservation, plants, insects, reptiles, birds, mammals, marine life and the traditional relationships between the Bedouin and nature complete the text contributions by a number of other experienced naturalists.
