  • A priceless flora of Cornwall. Exceptional.
    By Julian 27 Jun 2021 Written for Hardback
    I love this book. There's such a wealth of invaluable information and anecdote in it. The 1 km sq maps for most species provide an incredible picture of the distribution (and excellent coverage) which the county has achieved, and the relationship between distribution and geology. There are a lot of useful notes in the species accounts, great photos, fantastic features such as the Subgenus Rubus accounts – I am so tempted to take an interest in Cornwall's brambles now! The introductory sections are absolutely priceless – such a wealth of knowledge. It's a big book, and I've read mine to death over the last year, so the cover has now fallen off – but I reckon books are for using, and that's the biggest compliment I can give it.

Media reviews

"[...] I have a few quibbles with the design. [...] That said, this is a state-of-the-art county flora that reflects great credit on Cornwall’s tight team of field botanists, and on the expertise, dedication and computer know-how of its author."
– Peter Marren, British Wildlife 32(3), December 2020
