The New Naturalist Library is today a highly renowned series of publications, but in 1945, the idea was so radical that it was widely expected to be a flop.
This was the New Naturalist; the amateur field naturalist who studied nature to better enjoy it and to better caretake it.

 NAMA: Book Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
This recent addition to the longrunning Collins New Naturalist Series replaces the popular seventh volume, Mushrooms and Toadstools, written by John Ramsbottom in the early 1950s and in print until the mid 1980s.
According to the publisher, "The aim of this series is to interest the general reader in the wildlife (in a broader sense than we use in North America) of Britain by recapturing the enquiring spirit of the old naturalists.
The editors believe that the natural pride of the British public in the native flora, fauna, and fungi, to which must be added concern for their conservation, is best fostered by maintaining a high standard of accuracy combined with clarity of exposition in presenting the results of modern scientific research".

 New Forest Dog Owners Group
The late Colin Tubbs was an eminent scientist, naturalist and conservationist for whom there was considerable respect and if his instinct, let alone his research, suggested that "the problem demands more attention from the Forest managers than it is at present given", then it indeed warrants such attention.
In 1994, 514 territories were located in the New Forest, representing 31% of the population in the UK and a survey of one third of suitable habitat in 1999 produced a total of 205 territories giving an extrapolated total of 615 breeding pairs on the heaths of the New Forest.
Tubbs's findings from his survey of the New Forest in 1993 and 1994 showed a marked decline in the breeding populations of Lapwing and a less dramatic decline in the breeding populations of Redshank.

However the plan was hatched, what's certain is that the series of letters he slowly and steadily composed over the next two decades shows every sign of an increasingly artful literary sensibility at work.
In one of his letters expatiating on the ways of the woodcock, White articulated the essence of this new enterprise with a brisk resolve that now seems as prophetic as it does pragmatic.
The rest is literary history-and the germ for the allegory that Klinkenborg fleshes out with an imaginative empathy that surpasses any mere antiquarian fancy and suggests that White's stout faith in creaturely intelligence is still in good hands.
