New Nat­u­ral­ist: Hedge­hog

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - WILD AT HOME -

BY PAT MOR­RIS, COLLINS, £35

The hal­lowed halls of the New Nat­u­ral­ist Li­brary, in­au­gu­rated in 1945 with E B Ford’s But­ter­flies, have just wel­comed edi­tion num­ber 137. Usu­ally fo­cus­ing on groups rather than par­tic­u­lar species, this clas­sic se­ries has made an ex­cep­tion for Britain’s favourite mam­mal, be­stow­ing upon it a tome all its own. Pat Mor­ris shares a life­time of re­search in this au­thor­i­ta­tive, com­pre­hen­sive ac­count of all things hedge­hog, from hi­ber­na­tion and be­hav­iour to the role of cit­i­zen sci­ence in sav­ing a species that we love but, sadly, now rarely see.
