About the Author:

John Presland studied botany at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge, taught it to A and S levels for a few years and then pursued a career as an educational psychologist. Botany remained a hobby, both at home and abroad, for over 50 years. He became secretary and then chairman of the Sutton Coldfield Natural History Society, is now a long-term committee member of Wiltshire Botanical Society and has edited their scientific journal Wiltshire Botany for 16 years. A range of voluntary conservation activities have engaged him - Wildlife Trust nature reserve warden, protected road verge monitor, parish nature reserve organizer, regular recorder of plants and fungi, including recording for the Wiltshire Flora and the Wiltshire Rare Plants Register, and self-appointed promoter of the flora of dry stone walls. He has cultivated wild plants and taken many photographs. John has written about his activities regularly, and has contributed articles to Wiltshire Botany, the Newsletter of The Botanical Society of the British Isles (BSBI) and various other journals and periodicals. This work has extended to two booklets, one on the flora of limestone dry stone walls and one (with other authors) on abnormalities in plants, Much of the content of the website www.dry-stone-wall-flora.co.uk is his. For many years, he has given talks on botany, illustrated by colour slides, to a wide variety of groups. Throughout his working life, and during his retirement, he has read botanical publications and sought help from more experienced botanists to try to keep abreast of advances in knowledge. He is married with children and grandchildren.
