The Guardian on Flora and Vegetation of Shropshire

The Guardian of 1st April has an excellent  review by Dr. Paul Davies of The Flora and Vegetation of Shropshire, compiled and written by Sarah Whild and and Alex Lockton and published by YouCaxton Publications: ‘The Flora was produced from 350,000 records collected by more than 1,000 volunteer naturalists … a wonderful collection of botanical records, distribution maps, illustrations and photographs … the diligent and heart-felt work of amateur naturalists and conservationists is easily lost in the noise of human progress. However, I see each bite of data, each act of witness as bright and vital as a lesser celandine flower, humble in its title but brilliant in its presence – a collective joy.’
