As director of a Field Study Centre, Alan Waterman has taken thousands of students and keen amateurs on woodland natural history walks. Woodland Wild Flowers represents his life's work conveying the joy and fascination of our wild woodland plants to the general public.
Over 170 woodland flowers are illustrated and described here. The final section of the book explains how our woodlands have been shaped by our history, and gives a lively overview of how plants have adapted in order to thrive there, in various degrees of shade, acidity and moisture.
Woodland Wild Flowers will enhance the experience of all who walk in woodlands, observe the changing seasons, and would like to know more about the beautiful plants that grow there.
