Covering most of the prominent plants to be found in the wood it is both an informative reference guide as well as providing interesting information about plant facts and lore. Particular emphasis has been given to Ancient Woodland Indicator Species (AWI’s). These are plants that do not propagate and spread readily, so if present strongly suggest that a site has been woodland for a very long time. Tottington Wood is recognised as being a Semi-Natural Ancient Woodland.
The book is illustrated throughout with specially commissioned original colour photographs. Each entry in the floral section is laid out in the same way making it easy to quickly identify the plant. Every page gives details of the subjects habitat, height and flowering season,The trees are addressed separately and dealt with in more detail.
At only £5 (launch price), the book is very good value for money. It is a lovely book to own and would also make a fabulous present. Copies may be obtained via the Contact Us page.
