A Classic Offer

Gordon Graham’s 1988 County Durham Flora is a classic compendium of records that remains a key guide to wildlife enthusiasts of all kinds. Why? The detailed and authoritative mapping of wild plants and vegetation shows the status of communities across the pre-1974 ‘old’ County Durham boundaries (essentially the DWT ‘patch’). So it is a reference to compare with today’s botanical landscape. Of course, if the plants are there they will attract herbivores and pollinators that, in turn, will attract predators. Vegetation provides cover, shelter and nesting sites. So the Flora is also a very useful guide for those seeking fauna. Graham’s seminal work also provides extra background detail, including geology, which is fascinating and important.

This Flora has been out of print for some time, with scarce second-hand copies attracting a premium price. Thanks to a generous donation, DWT is able to offer some unsold copies for a limited time – first-come, first-served. Don’t miss out, buy your copy today!
