Jules Howard explains how our ponds can make a difference to biodiversity. With his fresh perspective on ponds – vital oases for nature – providing pond-dipping practical tips and advice on designing, planting up and maintaining ponds, he encourages us to explore the wildlife that colonises ponds with a torch, a microscope or a good old-fashioned net.
