My next book ‘Field guide to the wild flowers of the western Mediterranean will be in print in March this year by Kew Publishing. This took several years to compile, and will be the most comprehensive field guide on the region’s flora written to date, including 2,500 species with colour photographs and illustrations. Pre-orders are available now.

My ambition is for this to be a useful and easy-to-use companion to any wild flower enthusiast, ecologist or field botanist who wishes to reliably identify wild flowers in Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, the islands, and North Africa.

My recent book ‘Field guide to the wild flowers of the Algarve’ was written with Professor Simon Hiscock (Director of University of Oxford Botanic Garden). I have been lucky enough to teach field botany in this extremely rich floristic region for a decade, and it is still one of my favourite places to see wild flowers.
