About this book

Who Found Our Ferns? tells the story of the discovery of Britain's pteridophytes, from Saxon times to 2012. The lives of those who noticed, collected and described our ferns, horesetails, quillworts and clubmosses are interwoven with accounts of how, where and when they found them.

Includes historical accounts supplemented by recent taxonomic research of 85 taxa that grow wild in Britain and Ireland, or have done so in the past, with details of almost all records before 1724, or later for subsequent discoveries. Comprehensively referenced to primary sources. Over 160 illustrations include engravings from contemporary literature, nature prints, and herbarium specimens. With a list of pre-Linnaean phrase names and their scientific equivalents, chronological summaries of early reports, and a full index of plant names.
