Geographical position and geographical history has, however, resulted in distinct peculiarities, [as well as] modifications produced by the last great Ice Age. How much was destroyed and how much survived this catastrophe is discussed by Dr. Turrill. The various routes of migration are traced as far as possible and the changes in climate and the advent of man are shown to have led to profound alterations in the flora.” Still essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the nature of the British environment and its flora.
