The Biodiversity of Flora in Purbeck
Purbeck is renowned for its rich biodiversity. Jim White’s talk at our July meeting
touched on some of the reasons for this and explored the main habitats and examples
of typical flora, both the relatively widespread and the scarce.
Jim White, who has previously lead an S&T Field Trip in 2016, has worked in nature
conservation for his entire career. He first obtained a BSc degree in Botany from
London University in 1969 and has lived in Purbeck for over 40 years. He moved here
from Hampshire to work for the Nature Conservancy Council/English Nature, where for
the last 12 years of his employment he was the Dorset Team Manager.
Jim retired in 2006, following which he was elected as a Trustee of Dorset Wildlife
Trust. He was made an MBE in 2008 for ‘services to nature conservation in Dorset’.
He is soon to step down from his chairmanship of the Dorset AONB Board, and is a
regular volunteer with the National Trust on botanical and bryological (mosses, liverworts,
etc) surveys in Purbeck.
Field Trip Details will be sent to members nearer the time
