Item description for The Black Poplar: Ecology, History And Conservation by Fiona Cooper...
When seen silhouetted against a winter sky on a river bank, the black poplar easily earns a place among Britain's largest, most charismatic trees. It is also one of the rarest, and its future is causing great concern amongst conservationists.
This is the first book to tell the story of the black poplar in Britain: its historic place in the landscape, its cultural role in poetry and folklore, its uses as timber and in medicine, and the reasons for its decline. Fiona Cooper explores how an understanding of the black poplar's genetic make-up can help promote its conservation. She examines in particular the famous populations in the Vale of Aylesbury and in urban Manchester, the latter of which is under great threat.
