About this book

Plant Detectives is a brand new Channel 4 show that will bring botany to a whole new audience. This groundbreaking and informative programme will uncover the mysteries behind the dramatic changes in the distribution of wild plants in Britain over the last fifty years and will show how these changes affect biodiversity on a local and national scale. Did you know, for example, that Britain's national tipple, the gin and tonic, could be under threat? Juniper bushes are disappearing in much of England and Wales – but in Scotland, it's a differenct story.

The Wild Things: Guide to the Changing Plant Life of the British Isles will tell you the reasons for this development. This attractive, illustrated book will examine the stories behind the redistribution of our plants in a variety of habitats including woodland, mountains and wetlands. It will include stunning colour photographs of the plants in their native environments and will use maps from the Botanical Society of the British Isles to illustrate the striking contrast of our landscape between the present day and fifty years ago. This fasincating guide, written and fronted by the botanist who presents the progoramme, will inspire everyone to look at the world around them in a completely new way.
