I am interested in Natural History especially botany and entomology. My main interest in botany is British Alpine plants especially the Alpine Hawkweeds section Alpina and Subalpina which are found at quite high elevation usually in Scotland. I first became interested in Alpine Hawkweed through reading that great book 'Mountain Flowers' (1955) by John Raven & Max Walters. Many of the Alpine Hawkweeds are very rare with just very small numbers and should never be collected even for ID. I was given great help on this fascinating but complex subject by David Tennant.
