1001 Species: A Natural history of a Small Town

A fully illustrated and comprehensive natural history of the town of Baie-D'Urfé just west of Montreal in Québec. It describes and catalogues birds, insects, flowers, trees, fungi, lichens ... everything in fact and reveals the remarkable biodiversity of suburban nature when you really stop to look at what is around you.

Includes suggestions of places to enjoy the wildlife and how to "see" what you have in your garden and nearby.

This early version of the book is FREE (please download using the big blue button) BUT it is an earlier draft version of the text and so it does contain some typographic misspellings etc. If you are OK with that then ... it remains free and I hope you enjoy it. 

** However ... a final version of the book with the typos eliminated is also available in PRINT format (print-on-demand) or PDF (immediate download). The price of this version has been kept as low as possible and is charged to readers at cost + a couple of dollars and any small profits will be donated to local conservation organisations. The author is not taking a personal profit.
