Most widely held works by Joint Nature Conservation Committee (Great Britain)
British plant communities by J. S Rodwell( )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2000 in English and held by 1,172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work breaks new ground in wedding the rigorous interest in the classification of plant communities that has characterised continental phytosociology with deep concern traditional in Great Britain to understand how vegetation works

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Palaeozoic palaeobotany of Great Britain by Christopher J Cleal( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume, one of two dealing with palaeobotany, covers the first 200 million years of the history of land plant evolution, as represented by the Palaeozoic palaeobotany GCR site network of Great Britain. It demonstrates how the main facets of land plant evolution can be demonstrated at sites in Britain, and how the fossil record can be of value as an evolutionary and environmental indicator of the geological past." "This is the first book to place British Palaeozoic palaeobotany sites and their fossil content in a national and international context, showing the value of the palaeobotany resource of Great Britain. In part a conservation tool, this volume also provides the most comprehensive bibliography of the subject yet published, providing an extensive review of the research that has been carried out over the past two centuries."--BOOK JACKET
Aquatic plants in Britain and Ireland by C. D Preston( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Aquatic Plants in Britain and Ireland is the result of a joint project of the Environment Agency (formerly the National Rivers Authority), the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology, Monks Wood, and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee." "Over the past 50 years, major changes have taken place in the distribution of aquatic plants in Europe. Many species have declined in the face of habitat destruction, unsympathetic management of existing habitats, or the acidification or eutrophication of freshwaters. Other species have increased in abundance or spread, including several that were originally introduced from the New World. Despite the relative richness of the aquatic flora of Britain and Ireland it is a neglected area of study, due in part to its comparative inaccessibility and partly to the taxonomic difficulty of some genera." "This book summarizes the distribution, habitat and reproductive biology of 200 taxa in 72 genera and provides a brief summary of their wider distribution. Distribution maps are provided for all taxa and each genus is illustrated with a line drawing to aid identification."--BOOK JACKET
The Quaternary of Scotland by J. E Gordon( Book )

4 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In describing the geomorphological heritage of Scotland, this volume offers a remarkable account of how the natural environment responded in terms of landforms, processes and plant communities, to severe climatic change as the Quaternary era progressed over the last two million years. This legacy, as preserved in the 138 nationally important GCR sites described, documents a remarkable diversity of landforms in a relatively small area. The rugged highland contrast with the rolling hills and flat plains found further south, while the western and northern islands, together with the highly-indented coastline add further to the scenic diversity. How this variety of landscapes came into being, the forces which shaped it, and the climatic extremes which drove it, are the themes explored in this volume
Fossil reptiles of Great Britain by M. J Benton( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

British Fossil reptile sites are of international importance since they include remains that fill the time gaps poorly known elsewhere. They include rich classic reptile beds which have been the source of dozens of important specimens. This volume details all those sites that have yielded fossil reptiles. The fifty most important localities are described in detail and an extensive bibliography of everything published on British Fossil reptiles since 1676 is provided
Quaternary of the Thames by D. R Bridgland( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume describes important sites in the Pleistocene (ice age) deposits of the Thames terrace system which were laid down by the Thames and its tributaries during the many (alternating) cold and warm episodes of the Pleistocene. Considerable attention is devoted to correlating the Thames sequence with deposits found elsehwere in Britain, on the European continent and on the ocean floor. The ocean floor deposits are particularly important as the deep sea record is practically unbroken and can be used as a standard for global correlation. Quaternary of the Thames prepresents the first systematic attempt to relate the Thames sequence to this global oceanic record. This reinterpretation brinfgs the Thames into line with many other areas of Britain and the European continent, underlining the unique importance of the Thames sequence within the British Quaternary, and will be warmly welcomed by many workers in the field
Igneous rocks of south-west England by P. A Floyd( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume illustrates some of the significant aspects of magmatic activity from Devonian (408 million years ago) to early Permian (270 million years ago) times in SW England. This period covers the progressive development of the Variscan mountain-building episode, from initial basin formation to final deformation and the subsequent development of a fold mountain belt - the Variscan Orogen. Both extrusive (volcanic) and intrusive (plutonic) rocks are found in the orogen, and chart the various stages of its magmatic development. The sites described in this volume are key localities selected for conservation because they are representative of the magmatic history of the orogen from initiation to stabilization. Some of the earliest volcanic activity in the Devonian is represented by submarine basaltic and rhyolitic lavas developed in subsiding basins, caused by the attenuation of the existing continental crust. In some cases, extensive rifting and attendant magmatism produced narrow zones of true oceanic crust, whereas elsewhere basaltic volcanism is related to fractures in the continental crust at the margins of the basins. After the filling of the sedimentary basins, and their deformation caused by crustal shortening (late Carboniferous Period), further activity is manifested by the emplacement of the Cornubian granites and later minor basaltic volcanism in the early Permian. Accounts of the constituent parts of this history have enriched geological literature from the nineteenth century onwards, and have contributed to the advancement and understanding of magmatic and tectonic processes
Caledonian structures in Britain : south of the Midland Valley by J. E Treagus( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume deals with those sites selected as part of the Geological Conservation Review (GCR) within the southern British part of the Caledonides, that is, the paratectonic Caledonides - a Caledonian terrane without strong and pervasive deformation and metamorphism, such as occurred further north. This orogenic belt formed by long and complex processes of earth movements between 500 and 380 million years before the present (?late Cambrian to mid-Devonian times), and has been classic ground for geologists for two hundred years. It is perhaps no accident that James Hutton in 1795 chose to illustrate his geostrophic cycle (and unconformity) with three visually explicit examples of the deformation wrought on Lower Palaeozoic rocks by Caledonian events. The former Caledonian mountain chain, which can be seen today in fragmented pieces in Scandinavia, Britain and Ireland, and North America, was ultimately the result of the collision of two continental plates and the closure of a former ocean, Iapetus. Some of these fragments, including those in Scandinavia, southern Britain, and the Republic of Ireland and the Maritime Provinces of Canada, are thought to have lain on the south side of the ocean before collision: the rest of North America, northern Ireland, and Scotland are thought to have lain north of the former Iapetus
