About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Botanical Historian
Location Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom
Introduction I am a Botanical Historian, focusing particularly on David Douglas (1799-1834), and based in Sheffield, UK. Although I spent my working life as a career civil servant in the UK I graduated with an honours degree (1971) and doctorate (1975) in botany and experimental plant ecology. It has been a long time since I was a practising field botanist! I am a Churchill Fellow (2001) and co-producer of the film "Finding David Douglas" www.findingdaviddouglas.org
