Eric Meek's talk on monitoring declining flowers

Mountain Flowers

Eric gave a very interesting account of a project he and his wife undertook to check on the continuing presence of wild flowers in mountain and woodland areas that could be in decline. As well as introducing us to many plants we might otherwise walk past, Eric's talk amply illustrated challenges of reaching remote locations and of capturing often tiny specimens.
