The Forest enjoys strong populations of many special wildflowers because it retains a living tradition of free ranging domestic animals grazing its coastland, extensive commons and village greens. This book is an exploration of how the wildlife of the Forest is the natural expression of the lives and economy of the people of the Forest.

The book features:

  • An introduction to the New Forest and how its commoning economy works.
  • A description of the principal habitats of the Forest and how they relate to one another.
  • Accounts of the people who have explored the Forest for wildflowers from the early 17th century to the present day.
  • Descriptions of over 100 species of the rarer flowering plants and ferns currently known from the National Park, many of which are nationally or internationally rare, scarce or threatened.
  • An account of Forest conservation issues by someone who has participated in the life of the Forest for over twenty years.
