I am delighted that the Edinburgh publishing house, Birlinn, have now republished my Scottish Wild Flowers guide, which Harper-Collins had let go out of print. I took the opportunity to fully updated the species names, families and order of presentation to the latest taxonomic thinking, while still retaining the habitat-based arrangement of species to make the book as useful as possible to non-botanists. Birlinn have done a great job with printing, the colour I think is sharper and clearer than in earlier editions, but the book is also thinner and lighter, so even easier to slip into a rucksac. Copies are available from Amazon (see right).
A "Mini Guide" version of the book is also now in press from Birlinn, and this is due this spring. It covers most of the species in the 'main book' but is even easier to pocket and carry, so there is no excuse for not taking it with you wherever you travel around Scotland!
