WFS and BSBI Presidents' Award 2018


Scillies


Each year the Presidents of The Wild Flower Society and the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland jointly make an award to acknowledge the most useful contribution to the understanding of the flowering plants and ferns of Britain and Ireland through a book, major paper, discovery or outstanding exhibit during that calendar year.The award came about because of a generous legacy and BSBI and WFS take turns in presenting the actual award.

This year our president Professor Sir Ghillean Prance F.R.S. will award the prize to two authors who have written The New Flora of the Isles of Scilly. Both Ian Bennallick and Rosemary Parslow hope to be present at our Annual General Meeting to receive the award.
