new FLORA OF CORNWALL has gone to the printers!

Colin French has said that the new Flora of Cornwall, he has been writing for the last year, is finally finished and is now at the printers. Delivery should be early summer 2020, but in the meantime, there is a pre-publication offer where it can be bought for only £40, and that offer includes post and packing. The recommended retail price will be £50.

Colin says – “this Flora of Cornwall is the most comprehensive so far. A 550-page, full colour, hardback book (slightly larger than A4), it is based on a survey of every kilometre square since 1999 and covers 3050 taxa and includes over 1200 distribution maps and more than 1500 photographs. It is based on 2.25 million flowering plant and fern computerised records. Sections include the effects of climate, geology, soils, topography, mining, quarrying and agriculture. There is also information on vegetation history, key habitats, botanical regions, recording history, losses and gains, and rare and/or threatened plants. It also includes a chapter dealing with drift seeds (disseminules) written by Paul Gainey, and the extensive bramble section is written by Keith Spurgin.”
