Planet Guernsey, a landmark publication recording the state of the island’s environment, was launched earlier this week. The new book puts global climate change issues into a local context for the inhabitants of the Bailiwick of Guernsey and sets challenges for the future.
Centre for Ecology & Hydrology scientist, Dr Tim Sparks, contributed several chapters to the book - on migrant birds, wild plants and moths. Tim also provided the bulk of the statistical analysis for the study. Chief editor of Planet Guernsey, Dr Andrew Casebow commented “Tim’s initial enthusiasm and editorial guidance made the project possible”.
The new publication can be obtained from La Société Guernesiaise.
