The Firth of Forth; An Environmental History
Combines a rich wildlife with a history of long and intense human activity around its shores and in its waters. Considers a wide range of questions such as how have people affected and exploited the wildlife? How in turn has it determined the lives of people? What changes to the biodiversity of the Firth have taken place as a result of human interference? Why has pollution been easier to control than over fishing? What were the unintended consequences to the natural heritage both of pollution and of cleaning up, and what role has conservation had in bringing about the changes.
