I’ve just received a flyer which announces a pre-publication offer for a A New Flora of Devon. Publication is expected in December this year. I have reproduced the flier in full below which gives you the full details of what to expect and how to order it. A pre-publication price of £40 for an 848 page full colour book seems very good value. I will be ordering my copy very soon – the pre-pub offer ends on the 5th November. This book will be essential for all those interested in and charged with conserving Devon’s plants.
Congratulations to the authors Roger Smith, Bob Hodgson and Jeremy Ison on completing this mammoth task – Devon is a huge county and contains 2000 species of plant. Since the publication of the 1984 Atlas around 1 million plant records have been collected at both 10km and 2km level.
It is also good to see that the excellent Devonshire Association is continuing to support the publication of Devon floras.
As the flyer says “only a limited number will be printed and a second print run is unlikely” so if you want a copy make sure you order one in advance.
