About the Author

Michael Scott became interested in the flora of Britain's mountain and sub-arctic regions while studying botany at Aberdeen University. He has walked many of the hills of Scotland, Wales and northern England looking for wild flowers in magnificent scenery, and has also botanised widely in the Arctic. For many years he ran a field course on mountain flowers at a field centre in Highland Perthshire. He is a former Scottish Officer of Plantlife, the wild plant conservation charity, and former Deputy Chairman of Scottish Natural Heritage. He was awarded an OBE in 2005 for services to biodiversity conservation in Scotland.
