New Naturalist Library No. 107. Grouse and their habitats are of much interest to hunters and game-dog enthusiasts, and to the many others involved in outdoor recreation. However, grouse are also of great value in their own right as a beautiful part of nature.
Recent research regarding government policies has clarified old problems and controversies, which makes this new study on British grouse timely, if not essential. Adam Watson and Robert Moss offer some insight into the natural history and biology of British grouse species, ranging from aspects of behaviour and historical relevance of their names to population fluctuations and conservation efforts.
