Natural History of Tenerife
Tenerife is a remarkable island, dominated by Mount Teide, an active volcano higher than any mountain in mainland Spain. The island has extraordinary volcanic landscapes, and thousands of species of plants and animals that are found only there. The authors' love of Tenerife stems from its enormous variety of habitats with their complex plant and animal communities. They have explored the island from the laurel forests of eastern Anaga to the cliffs of Los Gigantes in Teno, from the semi-deserts of the extreme south to the richly vegetated slopes along the north coast, and from remote black sand beaches to the lavas of Las Canadas and the craters of Teide and Pico Viejo. Local Spanish experts have guided them to remote places and have contributed accounts of their own special interests. most studied of all volcanoes.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'...remarkable book. An excellent map at the beginning of the book displays the physical features and natural habitats on Tenerife. The book is a botanist's dream, detailing hundreds of different plants... I have never read a book with so many descriptive photographs identifying the many plants... Natural History of Tenerife is a reference book that must be unparalleled in its field. In my opinion its value extends beyond the normal reference book because of its usefulness to the visitor to the island in finding and sharing the joys of its wildlife. I consider it a must for any Tenerife tourist with an interest in nature'. Wildlife Detective - The blog of Alan Stewart -------------------- `...Philip and Myrtle Ashmole's endeavour was to describe the flora and fauna of Tenerife. It is something they have succeeded admirably in doing, in what can only be describe as a labour of love. ... a comprehensive, detailed and lavishly illustrated account.' John O'Groat Journal
