A comprehensive account of the natural history of the Welsh Marches is due to be written over the next few years.
The area covered will be from north Herefordshire, through Shropshire and up into Cheshire. It includes the hill country of Herefordshire and Shropshire, the Severn Valley and the meres and mosses of the Shropshire-Cheshire plain. This is a chance to raise the profile of the natural history of our region, to include as much up to date research as possible and to highlight the conservation and biodiversity issues that there are.
The author will be Andrew Allott, Head of Biology at Shrewsbury School, but this it intended to be a colaborative venture and all contributions of data and information are welcomed and will be acknowledged.
