Flora of the Eastern Pyrenees
Tuesday February 20 @ 7:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Speaker: Dr Brian Ferry (Royal Holloway College)
From 1990-2010 Brian made annual visits to the eastern Pyrenees where he made detailed studies of the flora. The flora is essentially Mediterranean in type, but with great altitudinal variation from lowland valleys, often dominated by evergreen oak forests, to high altitude beech and conifer forests, both forms of scrub vegetation derived from Man’s activities over millennia. As well as focusing on the plants, Brian spent time bird watching and moth trapping so these will get a mention too.
