Presidents’ Award for the New Flora of the Isles of Scilly

No – not an award from THAT President!

Rosemary Parslow and I, as well as the designer Glynn Bennallick, were delighted to be told last week that our recently published New Flora of the Isles of Scilly has been chosen to receive the ‘Presidents’ Award’, awarded each year by the Presidents of the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland (BSBI) and the Wild Flower Society (WFS). The purpose of the Award is ‘to acknowledge the most useful contribution to the understanding of the flowering plants and ferns of Britain and Ireland through a book, major paper, discovery or outstanding exhibit during that calendar year’.

We would like to thank all those who have told us how much they like the Flora, and to the BSBI and WFS for their award.

Ian Bennallick
