The Story of South Yorkshire Botany

Book Review by Pippa Hyde, published in the Wild Flower Society Autumn 2012 Magazine.

"This is a fascinating book that includes the Flora Sheffieldiensis by Johnathan Salt compiled around 1800. The book accompanies the recently published South Yorkshire Plant Atlas and  provides a vital background to that book. Well known botanists within the county are discussed together with lesser known people whose work has gone unpublished.

This book would appeal to those living in the areas covered but also is of great importance to those wishing to study the changes in flora of the last 200 years. Browsing through I found accounts of the work of John Ray (1847-1921). The latter is an important figure in the history of Yorkshire's botany who contributed much to knowledge in that area.

Johnathan Salt's flora is included at the end of the book and is a list of plants recorded in the area. It would be interesting to see if some of these records are still present in the areas mentioned."
