A little about me.
I studied Natural Sciences at Cambridge University.
next 20 years were spent, occasionally in the UK, but mostly travelling
and working as a science teacher in various parts of the world.
settled in Saint Lucia twenty years ago and helped develop and run a
small guest house. A few years after my arrival I started studying the
plants of Saint Lucia. It was very frustrating to start with without
resources and without anyone locally able to help me. However over the
years, with outside help (see acknowledgments
) and with the
support of the Forestry Department, I have come to understand
much better the large and varied flora of this small island.
last 18 months I have been putting together this web site. The main aim
is to help Saint Lucians learn something about their plants; hopefully
it will also prove useful for our neighbouring small islands and in
general to anyone who has an interest in plants.
I welcome correspondence
, comments, questions.
