The Wildlife of Waterford
           City & County
.................. .......

Publications - the Fauna of Waterford Series - to bring local information to local people and others.

 Information on Waterford's wildlife is scattered throughout many books and scientific journals and so is not easily available to the ordinary public at large. The Fauna of Waterford Series brings some of this information together in eleven papers and is supplemented with many unpublished field-records at the start of the twenty-first century. It gives a clear picture at this unique point in time of the status and distribution of every species known to occur in Waterford within the groups involved and also indicates what fieldwork still has to be carried out to close the many gaps in our knowledge. Others in the series are at an advanced stage of preparation.  The following titles are available Free of Charge ...
