Whether your interest lies in identifying ancient fossils, hiking through mountain wadis, identifying birds in your garden, exploring underground caves, fossicking along the shore, snorkelling in the shallows, SCUBA diving over coral reefs or fishing from a boat, you will find all the information that you need in this title to enhance your pleasure in these activities.  If your interests are of a more specific nature, such as studying plant communities, recording insects or investigating the behaviour and ecology of particular species, this book will provide invaluable background information on studies that have taken place to date and what species one is likely to encounter. Much of the work that has been completed on Emirati wildlife has been carried out by enthusiastic amateurs and this book is both a tribute to that effort and also an encouragement for others to make their own contribution.  But more than all these things, The Emirates – A Natural History is quite simply a celebration of nature at its best.  Written by 34 experts in their various disciplines, this book is illustrated with unique photographs, many of which are by award-winning cameramen. Who could turn these pages and not be in awe of the incredible beauty and variety of the natural world?  Conservation draws its roots and strength from such understanding and appreciation. The real wonder lies, not on these pages, or in these photographs, but in the wild, where nature still finds a home. Long may it remain so!
