Somerset Ferns a Field Guide by Pat Hill-Cottingham
Somerset Ferns a Field Guide by Pat Hill-Cottingham.
Pat Hill-Cottingham, a part-time lecturer at Strode College, Street, Somerset, is a zoologist who has succumbed to the fascination of ferns. As a keen conservationist and manager of a nature reserve on the Somerset Levels, she hopes that this book will help both the enthusiastic amateur and the established botanist to become more familiar with the ferns of Somerset. This practical book includes basic information, clearly explained, about fern structure and life-cycle, together with keys for identification and illustrated descriptions of all the Somerset species.
